Mirages (poetry + art)

Destinations like to dwell on the mind-
as if there was something out there to find.

Mirages dancing in the blinding light;
Carrots on the stick of a hero's plight.

Angels and demons are one in the same,
different pieces playing the same game.

Good distractions can be entertaining-
but all of that acting must feel draining.

When there's nothing left to say, stop talking;
Always trust the path and keep on walking.

I really like how you compare and contrast a few common elements, those that are part of our daily life; destination, the dwelling mind, mirages, barriers, good and evil, and using humor to pretend. These elements occupy our lives way too much. We can only keep on walking away. Many people think that it is running away, but it isn't. Sometimes you ignore and sometimes you choose to stay away from such conversation or circumstances, and it is fine to do so.

Selfcare is always going to be more important than what anyone else thinks. Running away and running towards really just depend on the perspective. We're all constantly going somewhere, I just like to do my best to avoid going in circles.
