Trial and Judgment


Every day a trial goes on,
in the court of heart
mind is the prosecutor and the defense
self, ego and libido are the convicts
judge the intellect, hears all appeals

Mind accuses self
for being too high,
mind defends self
it has been nurtured so

Mind accuses ego
for being adamant
mind defends ego
it has never been assuaged

Mind accuses libido
for its frequent outburst
mind defends libido
it has never been quenched

Intellect gives verdict
mind is the real culprit
it knows all, but
fails to guide its facets.

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
