Paths Of A Mind


Indelibly imprinted on the paths of a mind,
a future takes shape and begins to unwind.

As a tree sending out it's branches to
reach the sky and touch each passer-by,
a mind leaves itself a little bit with
everyone it meets.

An impression filling up part of an empty
mind, as all of life's thoughts are stored
and kept this way.

We all become a part of each other's minds,
and lay our lives upon an imaginary line,
crossing over it constantly to take each
other in.

That is how we all become friends in need,
we rely on each other's greed to love and
be close throughout our lives.

Always, giving up something to remain in
another person's life.
