  • Mental Breach

    Each person's thoughts a part of another person's brain
    Ability to make our own decisions going down the drain
    Everything we think of, somebody else has thought it first
    A dash of relentless hunger with an unforgiving thirst

    Endlessly a competition of who can win the most awards
    Even though they fight with weapons, they never fight with guns or swords
    No allies in the community, no matter what your choice
    Those who act as they're your friends dread to hear your pride-filled voice

    Overlapping minds pressure the others into thinking bias
    The solo participants of the game of life won't hesitate to try us
    The only social act in which your mind isn't your biggest fear
    Loud white noise drowns out the chaos until it's the only thing that you can hear

    Knowing how to keep your sanity isn't something to be taught
    If you don't know how to do it, it's a battle that can't be fought
    Remember to keep up your firewall if you plan to succeed
    They're harsh people. It's a cruel world, indeed

    Mental Breach is highly distinctive, percyswifey. I especially like "Everything we think of, somebody else has thought it first" in the first stanza, and the entire last stanza, especially, "Remember to keep up your firewall if you plan to succeed." Monica

        I read your poem again this morning. Even more truth today than yesterday. I have a brick wall
        that I am now going to trade for a firewall. You just made my life a little easier, but someone
        has said that before. The overlapping minds gave me the words.
        Welcome to the Zone. MHenry said it before, I forgot and he reminded me. Now I see this is your 1st post.
