Monkeys poison refreshing water,
You must login to vote
Quickly flowing clear to red.
Shaming even purest intention,
Nothing shifted, only voices in your head.
What animals stir inside your skull,
Do daemons linger there?
What conversations do you have,
Under hard bone, skin and hair?
In power you can hush them,
A victim you talk back.
Laziness or consciousness,
Choosing life between white and black.
Dwell and wallow overburdened,
Swimming in shame and regret.
Meaningless chatter between you and you,
An obsessive over thought fret.
The magic pill is found in others,
Risk the remedy and let them in.
Each friend is your zookeeper,
Capturing and quieting the din.
In the place of evil chatter,
Is now a friends peaceful voice.
Believing in your very best,
Supporting your dreams with choice.
Freedom is living life without needing perfection
