Battlefield of the Mind

Unkind thoughts loose in the air
Find their way to my open mind
To hook n’ snare their fair share
Of my conscience in a distortion
Of the otherwise bland neutrality
Of reality in lethality to my heart,
Sucking the vitality of my body,
Laying me tired and uninspired,
All while the sun finely shines,
And birds sing and the breeze
Brings me a comforting promise
Of autumn with her very gentle,
Cooler ways and colorful days;
So why can I not keep my mind
In peace or at least quietly sleep?
It’s like a battlefield of thought
With the war fought in my mind,
And my soul struggles to unbind
Itself from the negativity by way
Of positive creativity and real
Festivity of genuinely good life!
