Awake Oh Mind - Poem by Deb StevensHines

My oh my these walls are shaking
And yes another heart is breaking
I've taken all the things I need
It sure as hell is not by greed

The brain that functioned as a sponge
Recovers slowly from such a plunge
If mockery be their way of thinking
Abandon ship, for she is sinking!

Dormant thoughts my constant guard
And so I save from common yards
Selective of such roads they travel
Will spare them any need to grovel

Need some light shone on my future
People say you'll find what suits ya!
The anguish rides the sunset blaze
Shall hope rise in coming days?

A calibre of difference is ignored
Watch, as their peers gather sheep
And as the flock follow the lead
Another great mind shall sleep
