Poem: Mind Trip

Updated on July 19, 2012

Let me enter into your mind

Search for your deepest thoughts

Unlock your hidden dreams

Visit the places that make you who you are

What's one to find in this great mind?

Are you afraid to let anyone know?

Where should I begin in this long awaited journey into your home?

Don't worry, I'll tread lightly

I won't run, jump, or stomp around

Don't want to destroy the garden so secret in such a beautiful mind

But please, keep your flowers in the attic no more

I'll be gentle while exploring the grace behind your giving, the love behind your smile, the strength behind your standing, the waiting child you used to be

The person you used to see

I want to know what fuels your every belief

Let me into your maze, help you clear all the haze keeping you blocked from growing

Stay stagnant no more, but you must first open the door and let me in

To help you break the dams of prohibition

I promise I won't play with your delicate thoughts

Allow me passage to your soul

Not for control, but for gain

I want access to your every chord string

I want to hear the song your soul sings

Your song too beautiful for no one to hear

Let me help you make your song loud, playing it proud and clear

I'll be your muse if you just can't draw from without

Hoping to spark a fire from within

Burning bright, spreading fast through your bones,

Causing a blaze consuming your soul

Until all that remains, is the shining of a great mind like gold
