the mind as lake,
the surface,
what our conscience sees
living lives unaware
what lies deep below

water holds our thoughts
rising from the mud,
where this subconscious,
holds onto its self
and makes us
who we seem to be

The mind is a lake...and we best dive deep if we want to see. You are inspiring me to write something on this topic. Well done! MFS

Perfect and also eloquently put, Tony. This is truth.
