Focus drives us like cattle

herded down a single path

while mindset shifts

to creative self

and bringing our magic forth

social demands push us into a mold

productive and acquisitive

while that parallel self

sees the falsehood in the trap

and retreats to mist-cloaked lakes and bliss

the balance always tips

between responsibility and identity

two facets of many

on the journey to become who we are – Caroline A. Slee
