Conscious Thoughts

A Poem

Poems are just words on paper that sometimes rhyme

Why is it so hard to think of happy lines

Maybe my brain will go there sometime

Why is it always violence and crime


Who controls my thoughts, not I

If it were, it would be rainbows and butterflies

Not filled with all these lies

I'm insignificant through plenty of eyes


These thoughts can drive you towards different highs

Don't give it power it is unwise

Disarm them with its own demise

Have knowledge of brighter skies
