Journeys of the mind

Poetry
Where does your mind go 
When it's just wandering around?
What sights come forward?
What fragrances, what sounds?
 
Do you go backwards 
into times before?
Wish they were reality
as they once were. 
 
Or do you dream forward?
Wishes not yet met.
Make plans of their coming true.
How would it be if it was that?
 
How happy are you 
when your mind wanders off?
Does it journey into joy
or into anxiety or pain?
 
Journeys of the mind. 
Battles we fight.
No one else knows 
how hard is the strife.
 
Do you speak of your fears
With someone you trust
Or stay silent and conquer 
With self power alone?
 
Where does your mind go 
when it's just wandering around?
What sights come forward?
What fragrances, what sounds?
