A butterfly in my belfry

the mind
a friend for all who ever wanted something more than just fine
it's evidence of the old scriptures and the holy signs
it's about the only thing that ever really keeps track of time

Silly it is the mind in growth
as our mind consumes all knowledge in tow
for its a holy directive set forth in a straight row

it's a door that leads to the infinite unknown
it's a component for the soul who has it on a loan
it's the combustible fuel for when your in that blissful heavenly zone

its an idea for our soul to call home
it is a division bell to ring for when ur alone
it's a deconstructive and creative reader & writer for when it comes to poems
