Speak My Mind?

Speak my mind?

My mind you say?

My mind speaks on its own, each and every day.


It speaks through the doodles, the drawings, the figures on my notes

It speaks at the class election, I exercise my right to vote!

It speaks in the dance studio, expression at it's best

And when I'm trying to concentrate, it speaks a little less

It speaks when it's not asked too, and shies away when told

At times it should be filtered, it's a little uncontrolled  

It speaks on the virtues and morals of wrong and right

It even speaks when I'm trying to sleep at night!


Sometimes I wish it would shut up

All the trouble it's gotten me in...

But who can blame it?

If you've got it say it!

I love the mind I'm in!
