Mind's Potential

Poetry By: BrittanyJacksonPaz

This was an assignment for class to imitate the style of Emily Dickinson (she's one of my favorite poets). Plays with the idea of our minds' unlimited potential.

Silence is an empty pot-----

the Mind consumes the Vacancy---

It shudders in Fear?

or Fear shudders in It.

do you acknowledge.

the mutters for Help---

Yet, it won't consume

the Silence.

the Silence will consume Us.

It won't be heard---

a bird, will perch

upon the Foundation---

the mind'll quake.

as Our thoughs come

this Mind is Fake.

its feeble and---

the bird Reflects in the

Lake, are We Mad?

or is Madness, Us.

Are you scantily clad,

or are those rosemary beads

slipping in that Crack

Don't catch Them---

let them go and

dissipate, see---

in that Pit.
