State of Mind
Experience of state makes the flow great
Much more entertain than physical training,
A mental state formation the mind exert,
Endurance emerges of positive thinking.
State of mind running mostly with aching pain
It’s at the end you will drop into a small heap
Adulation creates before the medals are reaping.
Enjoy the warrior sprint that ends with a limp.
Time flows in realms of psychological stream
Mental state of mind takes away real happiness
Experience the flow going fast into physical gain
Lose the world immersed into self awareness.
Leaving the dirt, leaving the strain and waste
A mass exodus outside the state of finding a dream
Recovered from the state of people being diagnose
Lost in a world digging for the hope they had seen.
Delusions on the track reflect back to childhood,
Age raise the state of incredible phenomenon
Slipping in and out of time where the world stood
Detached from outside and lose all interest of them.
