Mindlessness

 

When despair muscles out rationality,

Ego takes quick possession,

Like a lender foreclosing

On a debt.

 

Lies and jealousy and envy

And hate, become as

Toys in a child’s

Hands.

 

Playthings to distract us from

Our wounds, mindlessness

To chase us from our

Birthright.

 

Peace
