Delusions and Confusions


Delusions leave your mind in wonder
As destructive thoughts they crash like thunder
They care not for the pressures they put you under
Or for the spirits that are torn asunder

Alluring dreams disturb your mind
They leave ears deaf and eyes blind
Words depleted and actions confined
Send you down the stairs that wind

Defining moments they cloud your thought
Leave emotions stunted and feelings distraught
There of worth but can't be sold or bought
They can only be learned if they are taught

Though the parts of you that they accuse
The goodness in you that they misuse
Will never undo the way they confuse
But they can't take back the men they produce

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
