Changing My Mind

Beleaguered by patterns
Harmful or otherwise
Feeling short of options

I turn again to medicine
Familiar and sacred

Bristling with trepidation
Like the advent of electricity
All the lights come on

Wheresoever my senses probe
I find something miraculous

Steeped in this phenomenon
I step outside myself
Into some revelation

Devoid of attachment to the ego
I simply am

Headlong into spatial bliss
I’m willingly projected
Through an emotional vortex

I cast my former skin away
Like the serpent of the infinite

Meandering through the psyche
Like a shapeshifter confidently walking
An unfamiliar road to a newly augmented home

I am reborn once again

is a great piece! I know what you say is the truth. I have to change my mind at least once a day. Your title is good, it reflects your mood well. The theme is equally good, and very relatable. The language makes this poem sing, and I can see that you have things under control. Nice job! ~ Geez.

This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place
