Poem:Tracks in our minds

Our minds are powerful. Computing every move we make, storing every memory, sometimes this can come as a negative factor for us when bad habits form in us or those around us. These tracks in our minds can lead to bad and sometimes tragic results

Tracks in our minds

Possessing us preciously

Like Persian blinds

Now running low like forgotten lamp battery

Life was then, life occurred then, after that melancholy

Now life lies forgotten on the sidelines as we endure this misery

Now filled with imprints of yesterday

Moments of magic that of course only yesterday can hold

Re-prints of a beautiful time stretch hopelessly toward that enchanted gone

Cosmetic now, cloudy stultify many a budding seed

Redefined redeployed, re-edited re-visited, yet still-gone

That conjuring moment of yesterday

Tracking through Time jealousy plods on-never back

On.

Infectious time-tomorrow
