A Journey Within My Mind

Long I lain on the 
couch
of my mind
Battling with left and
right paths
that leads to journey
eternal
Away from the
physical-earth but to
spiritual realms
I'm confussed either 
to
run the left
Or to make the right
stand-still
Just to fetch me 
out of
eternal trouble
The right for the 
Jews
And the left for the
gentiles
I don't know where I
belong
Later, I sat in a cab 
of
my thought
I moved from
something to 
nothing
From sense to non-
sense
Along the lane of 
great
turmoil
And darkness is the
street-light
That leads my way 
to
the grave of 
indecision
I choose the right 
path,
Just to follow the
footprint of my fate
With the hope of not
coming back
Yet stagnant I was,
But it is a crappy
journey within my 
mind

    Welcome to the soup. You have penned an original masterpiece of thought. Love those metaphors, I am still learning about those. Tricky things, but you use them well.
