Default Can You Read Your Own Mind


This is my first poem, so be honest.

Can You Read Your Own Mind

Can you read your own mind?
The thoughts left behind,
left in the back of your head,
those thoughts that you dread.
Can you hear that little voice?
That tells to rejoice,
or greive for the dead
long forgotten in your head.
Can you eat your own words?
Fluttering in your mind like birds,
whisping out your mouth and in your ears.
Are they there for you to hear?
Can your mind speak of you?
And tell of it too?
Or do you speak your mind?
The mind you left behind.
Do thoughts come to you?
Or do you come to thoughts?
Do you have something to believe
before the world rots?
Can you read your own mind?
Just read it now,
do not ask how.
Only think from the back of your head,
those thoughts that you dread.
Read yourself like a book,
those thoughts that overtook.
Don't hear with your ears,
hear with your mind.
Open it and you will find
every answer that you seek.
Answers both strong and weak.
The answers that will come only-
if you can read your own mind.

I know it's not very good but I figured I may as well post it.

"This is my fist poem, so be honest."

No. It's too tempting.
