mind games & cheap tricks

there’s always something going on
it’s what to focus on that matters

imagine missing the focus
you are like a human without a head

there’s something going on inside
your body knows all too well
—but not the brain

your brain is mostly focused
on the day to day
rarely shutting down from
survival mode
feeding on databytes
and microchips
dealing with reality

there’s always something going on
the question remains
how can you possibly discover
[what with all the lint & static]
that which truly matters
