Written by Loot, read by Andy Denham.

Doing things differently in your work and in the place you work can often mean changing minds, and more, changing the way people view the world, their state of mind. Not always easy.


It doesn’t take much to change a state of being.

From completely blind, to virtually all seeing

Not much at all, chance meeting or conversation.

If your mind is open, not committed to starvation.

Not closed, ambiguous or conceptually negative.

But mental door ajar and not shut down or plaintive.

Live with hope, just believe in possibility.

Massage your soul to embrace relativity.

Hear the message in the noise, don’t turn away.

Believe in the truth of a much better day.

Loot (2020)
