O my mind,

You and I have been together

For a very long time.

But now I want to leave you

And go beyond you.

Do you want to know why,

After all these years,

I want to discontinue our association?

Only one reason:

You do not have soulful confidence.

What you have is either

Ridiculous over-confidence

Or confidence-famine.

I simply don't want either of the two.
