2 Timothy 1:7 New English Translation
7 For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.
Can a mind be ruled, let us say by emotions?
Does it change the course of what it can’t accept?
That would make a difference from what I so perceive
It would be like life on its own, and that is not a fact
“Mind over matter” is a phrase that then surfaces vaguely
I thought the mind to be where stuff gets sliced and diced
Mostly bad and little good for the mind has no perception
Of right and wrong, just what’s gone, and surely not paradise?
The mind has no feeling, or that is what I think
It has no comprehension of what love is all about
It has only “facts” and figures assembled from the past
Of what we call intelligence and about that there’s no doubt
So what we feed into the mind has to do with our will
We decide on what we read and what the mind should know
Or at least apart as a major part of it as we are expending
In the issues of our “comeliness” as we reap whatever we sow
