English poetry, Mindful

Drowning Brain

Times have changed so swift,

That you start to drift,

Sympathy is given,

But not driven,

Happiness is brought,

Without thought,

Pains are shared,

Yet without care,

Close ones are there,

But only to stare,

Blank eyes are there,

Yet not as to aware,

The heart cries out,

To the only route,

Only there it sighs,

And becomes a fly!
