People sometimes complain I’m too much in my head.
This is true, and I know it. Is it a good thing?
Thinking is for engaging the physical plane.
If one goes far beyond that, he might go insane.
Nothing of existential value it can bring.
And when in search of wisdom, the mind is misled.
Too much value is placed on the thinking process.
Some old fart, way back when, said: I think; so, I am.
Well, he was, and he is now and shall ever be
But a fountainhead of Western philosophy.
Just because someone is, does the world give a damn?
We make much of our thinking the means to success.
Thinking can get addictive if it makes one high.
It has social significance. With other minds
One can start a big movement and trigger some change.
I am, so, I think, and this doesn’t sound strange.
I’m awash in deep feelings of various kinds,
And my thoughts are a small thing to help me get by.
