Changing Minds

Wed, 07/01/2015 - 09:32 -- Kmg44

My mind is the only thing that is entirely mine. 

And although it has been touched by this world a few too many times, 

It remains in a place that is far away 

From all that the world has decayed. 


To have something whole that is entirely mine 

Is more than I could ever ask for in a time when authenticity is blind. 

Knowing that I have something whole within my own body 

Is what gives me power in a world that is power-hungry. 


I do not hate this world, 

Nor am I blind. 

I see the injustice that clouds

What remains of our humankind. 


But because I have something unclouded that is within me, 

I feel relieved.

I know that change is coming,

For the change is within me. 


You have one too.

A mind- I mean. 

If we use them right, 

We can do anything.
