RealTalk Poetry • A Mind That’s Unable To Fill


They tell you “don’t”,
but it doesn’t matter.
You do.

They tell you there’s good
but you don’t think that’s true.

They say you should run
but you just walk away.

They ask you to leave
but you’re anxious to stay.

They tell you it’s wrong but
it just feels so right.

They say it’s impossible,
when it’s right there in sight.

Our minds want what they can’t
and crave what they shouldn’t.

We want and we wait
for things we otherwise wouldn’t.

We’re cursed with a mind
that’s unable to fill.

Yet –
we’re watched and we’re judged
by the strength of our will.
