unplug

unplug

constantly fed
a fountain of information
words and images
a steady stream
synchronising sentiment,
emotion, thoughts and feelings
until we sound the same.

embracing the unknown
walk away to wrestle
with wantonness,
find solace in stepping
sideways,
self-doubt starts the slide
to fulfilling our souls
as we finally think for ourselves.

For this week’s prompt, write an unplugged poem. The plug could be attached to computers, but maybe it’s a metaphor for relationships that need the plug pulled. Or a phase of your life. Or a way of thinking. Or a toaster. Just a toaster. – Robert Lee Brewer
