a load of dread will weigh heavy on the mind like a lump of lead
and when there’s a negative focus — guilt infects — and spreads
thrusting the body into a state of torpidity

but if you apply thought with care — consciously directing — without confining
only then do you start to understand its limitations and truly appreciate its function
