What are your soft spots?

What are your soft spots? 

How do you allow someone to hypnotize you
to rob you of your spiritual, mental and financial resources? 

Perhaps it is not as easy as hypnotizing a lobster
by stroking him from his nose down to his back
to be calm when put in a pot of boiling water. 

What distractions do you give in to
so that you are numb
to feeling your spiritual demise (boiling water)? 

Is it too much activity outside and not much introspection
that numbs you? 

Is it all sorts of legal or illegal drugs
that numb you? 

Is it some form of superiority or inferiority
that numbs you? 

Is there a certain mantra that numbs you? 

Is it some form of mind-less and reactive following
that numbs you?

Learn from the story of the lobster!

What is hypnotizing you
mentally, financially and spiritually? 

Recognize your hypnotic trance before it is too late! 

Don’t be hypnotized by the boiling water in your life.

The observation of this writer suggest that such anesthetizing is largely set upon us today from twittering and social networking, that "stroking" along the backs of our egos that falsely suggests we are appreciated, we are recognized, we are loved. Oy vay. "Recognize your hypnotic trance before it is too late" indeed. Another pin prick to our consciousness. Thank you.

The internet adverts make me numb. I have work to do and the "Pop up" out of nowhere. A very good write Shervin!

I like the whole premise of this poem. I interpret your 'soft spots' as 'blind spots.' Because of this numbing, we can no longer see. I like your opposites you use here: noise/quiet, legal/illegal, superiority/inferiority, which splash the distractions in every direction. I enjoy poetry that asks questions. ~~ Diana

Very good points!!! This meant a lot to me today.
I'm OK- having recognized much of the above- but I see people being torn down and always wonder why they are so easily led astray. I just have to remember I was just as easily taken in my past.
Great poem!

for some to lose is to gain...and weakness is strength. guess it depends on how one looks at it. thanks for share.

Sound words. A lot of hypnotism going around. So far, I've avoided catching it. I am soft, however, when it comes to helping the down and out. It's wonderful to see someone turn their life around because I helped them. If only because I gave them a little shove like this poem.
