Little Do We Realize

     The mind is a strange machine 
It
can 
play
    tricks on 
us 
   when we least 
expect it to 
The years have 
not always been kind
to you and me, reader
   But with a little fortitude 
       we will gain 
insight
    into the 
processes we 
label thinking and dreaming
    Don't ask for much 
    and you will be given plenty 
The world being what it is 
We must find joy when we can

    Absolutely loved the last four lines. This whole piece was so humble, and even the way you formatted it makes it all the more interesting. I love where your mind took you (indeed it is a strange machine... unpredictable to say the least!).

    I so believe this and I think this way too, Matt. Tell me about your writing workshop class. I took one in poetry 13 years ago and it really helped me when I was starting out.
