My Mind Drifts

Copyright 12-27-2016

Steve Lake


In youth my mind was tight

Tunnel vision focused upon each thought

No outside interference

Always more right than not


In age more clutter gathered

Exposed to outside contamination

Some of nature some man made

Injected into my thoughts in odd ways


My mind now reaching its plateau

A turning point I do not steer

Day dreams influence from within

Night dreams to complete my sins


Older now I can no longer shoulder

My mind like my skin no longer tight

Drifting in and out of focus

Some say I am no longer right


In my old age my mind drifts

My mind is here, there then everywhere

They question me in their ways of sanity

It's not so bad I think I will stay


Like learning after my birth

All that was new I absorbed like a sponge

Sight, sound and touch

All my receptors sending to my mind so much


In old age now I reverse

Half blind I refuse to see

Going deaf I am void of sound

Hands worn from calluses they deny

Setting free all that was captured by my mind


Now my mind forever drifts

Blessed not cursed

Death and I have settled my date

Dwelling in the happiness of my mind till that fate
