Mind Over Matter ( a poem of greatest inspiration)
A criterion of truth, not that of the sensual, but as intellectual and the deductive,
Truth, after all, a measure that we seek, in most every quarter, to be productive.
Mankind's greatest downfall, often a question of greed, or that most seductive,
As greater amounts of time, spent on self-gratification, promotes the destructive.
Might our minds win out over pain, ours only to give a try, it as a new perspective,
Could we control sickness or poor health, as one has to be a little introspective?
Would our most positive thoughts influence our own well being...proof in seeing,
Just taking a new outlook on our lives, one less negative, as friends, all agreeing.
Should we decide to explore deepest space, certain possibility, as argumentative,
Using precepts of mind over matter to afford us each travel, thoughts proliferative.
As a dream-time world of imaginative events, minds to expand, as regenerative.
Breaking all barriers, removing blocking thoughts, eradicating those, retrogressive.
Yes, the human spirit does far overwhelm the shadows, all put upon us sometimes,
The inner light shining within us, helping us to achieve, as hope to heaven climbs!
The mind reigns supreme over matter, that special manifestation we all hold inside,
Senses...hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste, of our minds, there each to abide.

Our mind, its computerized functions, programmed by our genetics, our own hand,
Abilities well understated, achievements, beyond realms of genius, to understand.
Matter, that substance manipulated, formed as the mind, creation, its end result,
The earth, its bowels, fashioned of all matter, artistry, of our god, it does consult.
