Mind

Colombian American poet






Should I mind…
If you and I discuss all about my mind?
Anyway… where is the location of my mind?
I remember… right now…
That just the other day… like now…
I was searching for my soul…
And founded IT deep within my brain…
Hidden well amidst my best thoughts…
And… total happiness overwhelmed my brain.

It was hard for me to search for my soul…
But… I did not complain.
No pain…
No gain.
Ha! I’ll dig deep within my brain again…
And… perhaps… like with my soul…
My mind might be located somewhere deep…
Within my brain.
What a pain!
Please…, old poet…, do NOT complain…
These things DO take time…, endure the pain.

At least it occurred to me…
That my soul and my mind share my brain.
Perhaps one is in the right lobe…
While the other is… in the left lobe.
Let’s operate on my brain…
No pain…
No gain.
My soul should be big… that’s for sure…
I’m a big man.
Right?
And my mind… could be on the left.
Or in the center?
Maybe… altogether with my soul?
Intertwined?
Right?
No… maybe… my mind is behind my soul.
Advising IT…
Compelling IT to act always right…
 And never saying: never mind!
My mind and soul reside deep within my brain…
There is nothing to complain…
All is gain!
Again, and again, and again!

I…
Am: Jairo Nemocon.
