The mind is like a building without windows.
As much as we’d wish to,
we can’t see in and know what another thinks
or why…genetics, an ailing mind,
response to the environment or others.
.
The thought most echoed before the cry
of “oh, no, not me” “I hope not me”
when the signs of the ailing mind
or body start sneaking out.
.
Most know the sound of the echo:
“oh, no” “oh, no” “NO !”
and then one thinks
“I hope it’s not a tragedy,”
or
“I hope it’s not about me
or one I love.”  hearing
the echo before the cry
of pain from a now ailing mind.

.
A family with a history of ailing minds
or, maybe living with a youngster or
spouse with an ailing mind
may  fear that others may pick it up:
the signs, the symptoms that
try to hide like living in a
building without windows.
.
The mind is like a building without windows.
As much as we’d wish to,
we can’t see in and know what another thinks.
We may pick it up from rumors,
or the newspaper or even the tv.
The ailing mind carries so much discrimination
fear, and denial that
the echo be fore  the cry may be silent,
bouncing off the walls of the mind,
not for others to know or hear.
.
The mind is like a building without windows.
The echo before the cry is that we hope
the ailing mind is not picked up by others
The mind is like a building without windows.
