To Twist The Mind - Poem by Samuel Hall

You must unwind to a time that you never thought exists,
Or bring about a consequence that can only subsist.
You must look around every corner without the knowledge of truth,
To see the image inside of you with no evidence or proof.
If only to see behind you when you don’t quite understand,
If life itself could push away every grain of sand.
To die and feel your life’s last reach at holding onto love,
Then open your eyes to suddenly find that you are still alive.

You will find that in existence, there happens to be a time,
A time where every responsive soul can write a decent rhyme.
Not every thought that can coincide with another is gone to ash,
For we the people are killing love for the principle freedom of cash…
