Self-knowledge

Do we ever truly understand ourselves? Understand the why behind the chemical alchemy that is our thoughts and motivations. Understand why we act against what we know is best.

If you figure it out, let me know.

 

Avoidance

I am sleepy
no matter my bed holds warmly
the memory of me

I am thirsty
belly full, I swallow eagerly
the filled glass before me

I am magpie
primed for the next gilted thing

I am monkey-minded
going wherever    should    is not
