Dispersing Thoughts

when others taint our vision

Sweet requiems that serenade ears

become eerie screeches from sirens

filled with tears when dreams and fantasies

become tainted with everyone else’s fears

Our eyes become blinded by the singing of other’s concepts

that plague our mind-frames into believing

that what we wished for isn’t a complete idea

And instead of steering our own ship through the paths,

we paved for ourselves

we end up living the vicarious lives of others

as we navigate through the rivers they designed for us.

Forever trapped

believing that we can’t formulate our own thoughts,
