~ Welcome to the Machine ~

How does one decide

Between keeping one’s own counsel

Or speaking truth

From the deep need to connect?

For, an overly analytical mind

Will re-think everything a thousand times,

Missing the most obvious answer,

By making all of it too complex.

There should be no shame in honesty,

Despite a tendency toward the ideal.

As long as one is honest with oneself,

Is true to what one’s heart does feel.

Of thoughts are emotions born.

Of emotions, are actions brought to life.

Ever spawning more thoughts,

And then become caught,

In the spiral of thinking, feeling,

Or…whatever comes next.

I’ve sometimes wished I could not speak,

And sometimes wished I could,

But didn’t.

I think. I feel. Too much, it’s true.

Discretion comes and goes like lightning,

Flashing sporadically through the mind,

That this honest heart reflects.

My fear does not stop me.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
