RUMINATIVE MIND

Dreams, memories, flashbacks
The cause, my mind ruminating
The cud it has consume
Some visions are
History, metaphysical, or jumbles
Some jumbles conscious
Some subconscious
Some become history
Through the 90’s
Fear of flying
So strong
Had to be drunk
To fly
All 2000
Fear almost paralyzing
When over three floors
From the ground
Bad for a security specialist
9-11 the answer
Never underestimate
6th sense
Kept me alive
On the beach
In the snow
In the jungle
In the desert
On the streets
The mind ruminates
All the input
Like an obsolete
Computer
Can’t get hold
Of It
