Mental Warfare


Texte: Mental fight means thinking against the current, not with it. It is our business to puncture gas bags and discover the seeds of truth – Virginia Woolf

Two great forces armed with destruction
battle within subconscious thought
intimate and intense implosions
of sensory perception
an awareness as nothing remains
as it first appears on that distant horizon
but mortality rests with the enemy
lagging behind in the past that refuses
to relinquish its prisoners
captured in the normality of days gone by
yet truth can only speak
when all else has let go.

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.

    I had my own lyrics for that song. But that could be because I am a pervert and like Kylie Minogue 😉
