The Restless Mind | A Poem by Noah Steinberg-Di Stefano

The Restless Mind | A Poem by Noah Steinberg-Di Stefano at Poems and Poetry Blog

My mind Drifts
Like a plastic Bottle
On an ocean wave
Finding its way to virgin shores
Unable to resist the enticing pull of the beautiful unknown
Can I trust it?
One thought visionary, the next wavering
All impulsive and unpredictable
On constant tug of war between passion and reason
Sensitive segues
From one notion to the next
Giant leaps of consciousness
The restless mind walks the line between genius and impulsive insanity
The restless minds floats like a seed in the wind
At the mercy of the slightest change in the current
The seed is an idea
Once that idea has found fertile ground
Its roots dig deep
Stubbornly, mercilessly
Taking hold
Sensitive segues
I will make this a reality says the restless mind
Nothing will stop me
