Habits of Creature

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
