Mind Over Matter

by Aegis   Jun 29, 2017


Trepidation permeates my
every thought,
and bemusement my
every action.

My head and heart wage
a bloody civil war as I
vacillate between being a
romantic,

or a realist.

    I have these problems daily. Pursue a life of art, romanticism and uncertainty - possibly losing myself along the way - or settle down into the mundane - but certainly safer - furrows of a 'normal' life.

    Great write.

    Hi aegis
    Really enjoyed this piece, so much said in a little way. 'a bloody civil war'
    'vacillitate between, whether a realist or romatic'
    Love this thought

    The war sure is bloody. And this is so bloody relatable. It's always awesome when one writes down what my own mind wants to. Great piece!
