My. Mind.

Tue, 03/29/2016 - 16:36 -- ShaylaB

My.

Mind.

It's all I need. 

Take all the material things;

just leave my mind where it is.

With my mind, I have everything else.

With my mind,

you can't take my ability to move,

my ability to express myself, my talent: dance,

because My Mind allows me to do that.

You can't take my voice,

my ability to speak, to sing, to reach out to and communicate with the world,

because My Mind allows me to do that too.

With my mind,

You can't take my ability to love.

To be loved.

You can't take my ability to hurt.

To regret what caused my pain.

To fall for him,

To yearn for her,

To FEEL.

To think.

To be successful.

To do anything at all.

Because it's all in the mind;

My Mind.

It's all it takes to do anything.

You can take anything you want, 

but with my mind, I have it all.

My. 

Mind.

It's all I need.
