The Never Mind
2004 Eric C. Lind

 

Never mind that I asked. You accepted.

Never mind once you did I regretted

ever minding bringing you in

to my hope that's start to wear thin.

 

You're part of the Never Mind.

 

Never mind that you're words are aggressive.

Never mind that I chose to be vested

in the persons who needed me then

to discover my use has worn thin.

 

You're part of the Never Mind.

 

Never mind is a modern condition.

It's the absolutement self vision,

while your world is viewed from within,

and protected from personal sin.

 

You're part of the Never Mind.

 

Never mind that I asked you discover

that the everyday needs of another

resemble your own and are kin

to the needs you expressed from within.

 

You're part of the Never Mind.

 

Never mind that I'm curled in the corner

like my world is totally foreign,

that like you I need someone here

to help me deal with my fear.

 

You're part of the Never Mind.

 

But the difference between you and me

is that I'll try objectively

to give others aide that they need

in the hopes that someone won't bleed.

 

You're part of the Never Mind.
