Opinions
Can be as addictive as opium

They seem to come ‘natural’
But they are ‘man-made’
Opiates to the brain

We tend to keep coming back to them
For the pleasure
Of feeling sure about something
In a temporary escape from the unknown

An opinion
Is a decision
A chosen manifestation
From an endless range
Of potential and possibilities

When we hold it lightly
It can be a move in the dance of life
When we ‘stick to it’
It might make us drag our feet
In the face of the ever changing
Curves of life
