I just started writing what is probably best described as bad poetry. I basically write about an idea, condense it, add some metaphors, and hope some kind of easy cadence comes from it. They are largely brain vomit.

The Clarity of Being

The body and mind are by design
The tools we have for being
Without the use of both we are
A river that is not flowing

To lay to rest the mind we have
A dam construct do we
The river no longer passes by
But poisons in stagnation

The mind can build a mighty dam
Or anything it chooses
But equally adept are we
At razing it to ruin

As mountains run down river beds
The same as much are we
To recognize the way of things
Is to free oneself to be
