Peaks and valleys

The mind is no desert, its lush peaks and valleys

Make it a playground no one wants to leave

There are clouds and rain, bright sunshine and dark skies

The ever changing canopy keeps the senses sharp and honed

Inequality rules, in the mind, crowds of thought

Live in its valleys, the privileged amongst them rule the peaks

There is no level ground, for them to meet

Blustering winds and storms of discontent don’t follow

An almanac’s predictions, life’s unpredictable, only in the mind

There is no escape for those on the peaks, the valleys will claim them

It’s inevitable, the view from the top may be nice, but there isn’t freedom

When rivers can leave the peaks and valleys behind, why can’t we?
