Your Own Mind

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

You say,
You've got your own mind.
But why can't you find time to use it?
Why can't you find time to use it?

And you say,
With it doing it quick...
Decisions you make have a benefit.
Although you allow doubts to exist.
And lieing to yourself you just can't quit.

You say you have faith but where is it placed.
Why can't you find time to use your faith.
Why can't you find time to use it.
Why can't you find time to use it.
You say you have trust but not enough.
Why can't you find time to use your trust.
Why can't you find time to use it.
Why can't you find time to use it.

Why can't you find in your mind to last,
Exactly what you want without questions to ask.

Why can't you find time to use it.
Your own mind.
Why can't you find time to use it.
Your own mind.

You say,
With a doing it quick...
How you use your mind is your own business.
But seldom is it used for you to prove it.
Yes...
Seldom is it used for you to prove it.
Seldom is it used for you to prove,
You have your own mind to use.

You say,
With it doing it quick...
You have your own mind and it's a benefit.
But...
Seldom is it used for you to prove,
You have your own mind to use.
