Ello! Ello This is my first post of many, a writing I did, A poem titled "The Ballad of the mind" one many poems for a book I am working on at the moment. The poem is about the mind, the trials it undertakes, thoughts, Issues, Imagination, pain, etc. Can you relate?
Travelling my mind seeing the sights looking for a way to reach new heights
It’s a ballad of the mind moving through life I will grab what's mine
Walking through the dark, searching for a light
Working to be a better self, only wanting growth, In the end It will be refined
It thinks alone, sleepless at times, It’s on a Journey
Gaining knowledge with each experience of each day
My thoughts fight a battle, taking part in Tourney
Which is the winner? only my feeling heart has a say
Seldom do I dream when I sleep
Often, I dream when I am seeing
Random thoughts greet me with conversations that are deep
For instance, assess this and tell us, what are you feeling?
It wishes for freedom, it wants to rest, too much emotion absorption
Overweight with the world, when it is not even mine to shoulder
It influences how my decisions or made, brings my life to distortion
Each they feel myself living in winter, getting colder
“morning”, greets the day, no smiles, what did I do?
are we even friends, acquaintance even, stay your distance
“I really don’t no harm, just being myself, I do want to know you”
Well, no worries, I have always been alone, I see your resistance
One part my minds story, more to be written, will I share?
That is left up to you, or maybe me the Author
Let us pause here for a while, not the end, my mind went off somewhere
The Story will continue, until the next quarter
