Two MindsA Poem by Lori Carlson
A part of my mind plays tricks on me
pretends it is my authority
covets self-loathing and hatred
Like hammer against metal
this mind tries to shape me
mold me into what it wants me to be
This mind creates mazes
whole labyrinths to confuse me
leaving me wandering endlessly
But deep within me is a place of truth
where self never lies
where trust dwells and flourishes
This mind of logic and reasoning
breaks through the bonds of confusion
allowing the real me to shine through.
