Opinions, poetry written by Maggie O'Brien at Spillwords.com

A silent voice
I can’t identify
but well know
Softly recites so
as not to be overheard,
spinning its spell
with these wise words.

“There’s a comforting ring to
those opinions you cling to
like the bars of a cell you built.
In there you sit
where food on a plate
is slid through a slit
while you wait.
But within your grasp
Is all you could ask
and more.
Whate’er is without
is also within
in equal & opposite measure
No doubt.
Beyond those bars
free, under the stars
waits infinite, mindblowing pleasure.
Yet you do not dare
to venture there
far from the plebs and the minions
to face full on
that space beyond
your opinions.”
