We Need to be Challenged

We need to be challenged

Fortification through experience and in time

Will forge and shape our behaviors

A living furnace for a tempered mind

We the beings of habit

Must deploy a check and balance to remain free

The charioteer of our ego

Must use reason to introspect and oversee

We are developing creatures

With many flaws and deceptive artifice

We created the arguments for and against ourselves

We were the ones who started all of this

We have so much potential

Yet we waste our effort founded on faulty belief

Never do we benefit from leaning new ways

We are stuck perpetually recycling this antiquated motif



Be You of Conscious Mind

The moment before

You drift off to sleep

A memory comes to you

One that is buried deep

Memories often populate

And integrate with your dreams

Leaving with you a communiqué

To unravel the schemes

The mind has a way

To process the unrest

Perpetuating those feelings

You may have suppressed

A subconscious attempt

To resolve any dissonance

A conscious mindfulness

The conscription of imminence

Be you of conscious mind

Be you one to search your soul

I present to you

Our cognitive tool for quality control
