I write what I feel…

My head, my brain, my mind


Post No. 787


My head, my brain, my mind


My head says one thing,

But I can’t make up my mind.

My brain tells me, ‘No’,

But my mind cannot decide.


There is no unity between the three,

They all seem doomed to disagree.

‘Mind over matter’, or so the saying goes,

So what’s the matter with my mind?


‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is another,

So tell me, my brother,

Is it possible for me

To leave my mind behind?


I can lose my mind

Or I could lose my head

But if I lost my brain

I surely would be dead.


This poem was written in 20I2, but I must have forgotten to publish it, lol.

Oh dear, I see it was published although a search did not find it.  Gremlins!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Sometimes we must look at things through the mind’s eye, but, we must keep our heads out of the sky. So that we may train our brain to remain.. Somewhat sane!
    Nice thoughtful poem Denise, it’s good to have you back.


  2. Thank you so much! It’s good to be back. Not liking so-called ‘improvements’ at all here at WP though.


  3. Denise,
    Very clever as always. I’m not like the WP changes either. You’ve been missed!


  4. Welcome back, Denise. You are the one who watches the thoughts and feelings arise. These include, alongside many others, “head”, “mind” and”brain. Look beyond that skylike ocean from which thoughts and feelings are born and then dissolve and within also arises this mysterious watcher.
