MIND over MATTER

I have seen many examples

of people that want to move

objects without raising a hand

What sounds supernatural

I now see as a potential disability

We worry so much about

AM I OLD?

AM I FAT?

AM I PRETTY?

AM I STRONG?

One might think we really care about our body…

but in actuality, it is simply catering

to the MIND and its insecurities

The mind doesn’t give a shit about the body

It only cares about what others think about it

I live in a neighborhood that

shows obvious battle scars

its a population of homeless

addicts and mentally challenged

Yes, there is a little bit of everything

in this land of nothing

I watch my peers limping and racing

down the block to be able to smoke that cigarette

I see the over the hill thugs

standing around the CHECK CASHING spot

waiting for their cue

We are running away from

our thoughts and the body

and spirit is the casualty.

I used my body to get what I

needed to silence my mind

My body took all the wear and tear

and eventually the mind

abandon’s ship and leaves you

with a shipwreck then we continue with

our Ritualistic Methods of behaviors

engrained in the brain

that still feel so important.
