The mind is a tightrope.
Our subconscious is an abyss
as we hold on with white knuckles to avoid an eclipse.
And the Grim Reaper waits
while we search for a spark of hope or a switch.
The dark and the light fight it out to see who wins.
But the truth of the matter is this.
Only we hold the key to our thoughts.
We manufacture them every day as we saturate our brains
with images and words in every way.
So consume only the good, leave the ugly on the side of your plate.
And then your mind will be a happy place.
