Velcro And Teflon



Minds can be like Velcro
with a retention clear.
Gathered information can safely adhere.

Minds can be like Teflon
without much of a clue.
Gathered information passes right on through.

Hearts can be like Velcro
with a resolute hold.
Committed attachment makes betrothal bold.

Hearts can be like Teflon
without an honest pledge.
Committed attachment slips right off the edge.

Souls can be like Velcro
with steadfast anima.
Adjoined empyreans lodge utopia.

Souls can be like Teflon
without an anchorage.
Adjoined empyreans quickly disengage.
