The thing about poetry is:
You don’t know what you’re going to write
even as you’re writing it
It’s a flow
An up-welling of words from the deepest part of our soul.
The prompt of this poem is about the conventional state of mind
Can’t we see our country is drowning in the state of righteousness? Righteousness being: The act of knowing what to do before we do it
The opposite of a poem
Now, I have something to say
A salvation: for all of those willing to change.
A death sentence: for all those who are not.
The internet has added a new dimension
The state of mind that built our time
was created in a time that did not know instantaneous information
And just like the quickening of wind brings about a sea change that disrupts all
Our quickening gives us the power of knowledge to surge forward
and reinvent the new by re-inventing our self
And so, it is not that written poem that will shape our world.
The written poem is only a teacher.
Our world will be shaped
by the men and women courageous
enough to harmonize their soul with that up-welling
so that their life becomes an embodied poem.
creating the unimaginable
at a speed
the state of mind
of the self-righteous
