SPEAK YOUR MIND
Now, let me introduce you to your mind,
And let’s find out the ways that it’s inclined.
The best way that I know’s to take a pen
In hand, sitting in readiness, and then
Attend to subtle whisperings in your head,
Transcribing them, then seeing what you’ve said.
“I don’t know what I think until I see
What I have said” is no absurdity,
For suddenly what was unconscious rises
Into words revealing its surprises:
The very act of verbalizing shows
What otherwise your mind might not disclose.
