What Shall You Do
As I stand before you with a naked mind
One that is unadulterated and pure
wanting to learn all about life
Not just the world we see and touch
Rather the powerful world of emotions
that so many seem to run and hide from
or chase so hard they cry in their track
What shall you instill into my mind first?
Love, fear, compassion or survival techniques
Can you feed me emotions?
Without contaminating me with your past
When will I hear your first lie?
Which is the real truth?
The spiritual word or the endless race to neverland?
On what day do I dance with my own mind?
Will you truly ever let that happen?
Welcome to my naked mind mom and dad
please handle with care, for someday
I will have to answer these questions and more
