Words and Actions

Words flow from the tip of the pencil

Ideas conjured from the murky depths of imagination

Onto paper to reader, then into the minds

the cycle of ideas never dies

Idle thoughts

Never-ending cycle

And yet why,

in a world of change and new ideas

why is the hardest thing to change are our mind?

Fingers can tap out messages

of whatever nature we please

Yet our minds remain fixed

in their unyielding state

Subconscious messages control

unconsciousness biases

influence actions of utmost importance

Yet rational reason

always succumbs to personal

emotions and biases

that show no mercy

Yet they mean no harm

the lessons we internalized

Lessons we pick up from external examples

Who are we to blame for the actions of our own

We are one

yet we are many

but our ideas our interwoven and

we are more connected that we

could possibly imagine.
