Ease of Decision, Tenacity of Mind - by Bob Atkinson

Ease of Decision,
Tenacity of Mind
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

so many times in our lives
we gather not true facts
just grab at straws, finalize
our beliefs with small impact

we carry these great burdens
those of narrow minded ideas
staying with our hearts as if
they held our timeless feeling

burned so deep into our lives
these quickly grabbed surmises
tell us how to find the truth
with echoes of alliances

can't let them go away when said
they're false, not really real
only with great tenacity
can we remove our zeal

takes great and lasting payment
to cling to what we think
allowing then our self image only
to take us to the brink

seems sad we'll delude ourselves
not for fact but self expression
into doing that which we
see not as inspiration
