As one grapples, within...

The face that shows is but a guarded
representation, piecemeal if not only
to prevent what one truly desires, but
often to protect others as well as ones
self. The contingency acts upon many
levels, many minds forming one
collective soul. The want mind, the
hate mind, the work mind, the family
mind, all have their own agenda, and
at varying times command center fore,
but alas all things, minds included at
least in this consciousness are
fleeting. It is at the moment when all
minds concede from their travail, and
we shun the standard common to us
all as living, that you may allow your
self to emerge.
Unguarded desire, fleeting by all means.
