This is an observational free-verse sketch illustrating the fluctuating thought which happen to any mind.

Untitled

It's amazing what the mind will tell you.
One minute you stare at the locked door
And think it is the way of life--
That you were meant for eternal incarceration--
And your problems "own" you, as if they
had supernatural powers.
The next, you see yourself on the other side,
Sipping sweet drinks on a tropical beach,
Never getting sunburned,
Never getting sand in your shoes,
And never fleeing from the hurricane.
It's amazing what the mind will tell you.
