You Are Not Your Mind

You Are Not Your Mind

The mind locks us
Into cages of doubt
Even mistrust until paralyzed
With fear we can not
Free ourselves when
The opportunity presents
Itself so we walk
This earth as prodigals
In loss and abandonment
So that being alone
Becomes our curse.
This yearning for immunity
Will never purge the guilt
Until we let go.
Otherwise we can
Choose to be friends
With chains.
