Custody Of The Mind

Updated: Feb 17, 2020

You can recognise those moments when you’re just overcome by some recurring thought or emotion.

These little ideas or curiosities that tend to just pop into your head, distracting you, stealing your attention and redirecting you against your will.

It’s nice to live in a world of wonder.

It’s nice to be curious about the world and your place in it.

But be weary, for some curiosities can quickly become unhealthy obsessions and lead you astray.

Obsessions have their way of attaching themselves to you and infesting you,

Until and often against your will, you eventually lose custody of your mind

No longer in control, passively giving it up to the powers that be.

It’s the idea of following a thought down a path, until you've completely lost sight of where it came from,

Lost sight of where you are going,

And lost any grasp of reality and the possible consequences.

It’s at this point, that you’re no longer in charge.

But if you are no longer in control, who or what is?
