The Room of Your Mind

You are who you are until you’re eventually not.
Whether it’s because you didn’t care or simply forgot.
Nonetheless, you are yours and ultimately yours alone.
So why not make that head of yours a comfortable home?
And you know, while we’re at it, why not rearrange.
Move the box of memories over here, and finally turn the page.
There’s so much space to work with, so many spots to fill.
So why convolute the flow with a less than important thrill?
Pick up those books you meant to read, the lie you told last year.
Decorate in truth, not greed, and toss out all those fears.
Turn on some tunes, some happy ones, something introspective.
Enjoy the feeling of being free inside your personal collective.
You have the tools to install some windows and brighten up the room.
Don’t fear letting bugs get in, they’re important too.
They’re the little things in life we often tend to overlook.
So caught up in this and that, we forget to set the hook.
And when things get colder, strike a match and start your fire.
Light up the darkness in the corners which hide your true desires.
When you feel that coziness come forth and settle in.
Accept yourself for who you are, and await the change again.

it gets hard to breathe in a box oxygen depleting dont help me please ready unconsciousness for my eyes will leave enter integers complete product minus greed inhale sawdust when im slicing the tree of life – dilate my soul to fight through the gauntlet of mean and nice – deep within my psyche ancient information is a light in the darkness of demons – utilize my minds sight – disintegrate the fiber that degrades our kite – preserve unyielding energy through the dim lit night.

There is promise in your faith
No promise in your plans
There is promise in your grace
No promise in your land
There is promise in your courage
No promise in your hands
Promise in your learning
Still you are just man
There is promise in your animation
No promise in your face
There is promise in elation
No promise in your pace
There is promise in momentum
No promise in your space

HEthens have some of the best poety :)


Do what you really want,
not what you were told to do.
Fuck it, don’t be blunt.
Do you.
It’s your life, not theirs.
You might mess up, but who cares.
That’s life.
You’re bond to experience some strife.
The world we live in a little meh, but there’s still some glory.
It’s hard to come across but you’ll find it, don’t worry.
