Are we more creatures of habit,
Or habits of creature?
We like to pretend that we have routines,
Decisions made every day to control our lives.
What about our monkey mind?
When are we making our own decisions
Versus tapping into our primal urges
And acting on instinct?
Creatures of habit are boring
Mundane, ducklings in a file line
Following along in lockstep
Trying not to stand out
Habits of creature are real
Visceral responses to a habitual world
Allowing us to flex
And become mighty
