The Mind-Admonishment

A fountain where devious thought flow A spring where goodness grow Right or wrong it doesn't choose whatever conceived it will use In it esteem is lost Within it ego is just The I am not good enough and unwanted I can do better,am worth it are chanted Inside the Mind is a hidden Cave of rapid Where even the soul of the intrepid In adversity creeps in to stay Retreating deep within and carried away The gallant may have fought fear,failed and fallen The mind cares not how brave,bold and brazen Rock bottom,struggling on the ground Head reeling,bottom aground Why wait for a helping hand A good-for-naught you will be brand The mind knows no kind word It tramples,it snares as a mighty Lord Self-pity an enemy to the downtrodden Believe me hope lightens the burden Let not the Mind win Pull yourself together and again,begin.
