Poetry Monday: The Mind Will Lie

A cage within a cage
The mind within the body
Thoughts are the bars
Insecurities are the locks
The key is missing
How to survive
How to escape
Hope comes and goes
Staying positive is
Something learned
Expect the worst
Hope for the best
Reality is always in between
Escape is possible
But it can’t
Be done alone

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
