The World

Aside Posted on

The world is merciful to those who are merciful and cruel to those who are not merciful.

To fellow poets
and those who aspire to be poets,
I salute you.

Bear it in your mind that poetry is not written
like television comic created from fairly land characters taken from folklore stories
to entertain children,
or told like a story to while up time
on a camping night long.

Poetry is not composed like philharmonic orchestra music to amuse the rich out for a feast to showcase their bounty and wealth
in aristocratic manners.

Poetry is not thought or pondered like solving a riddle
or a jigsaw puzzle,
neither is it planned like a house construction
nor is it designed like an architectural drawing of a proposed fitment .

Poetry is not formed like a political party
or drafted like a draft constitution.

Poetry is felt like gum stuck on the soles of your shoes
or pebbles stuck on the soles of your shoes.
Poetry is an inanimate thing that you cannot touch and see
yet you can strongly feel its presence caressing you like a lover overwhelmed by ecstasy.

Follow Your Heart

Aside Posted on

“Follow your heart” says the metaphysist
because when your soul grieves,
your heart grieves.
When your soul smiles,
your heart smiles.

The world today suffers blot
because man have chosen to follow the eyes
and the material world
for what we see with our eyes,
the heart does not desire.

The First Thing

Aside Posted on

If you want to do something ,
the first thing is to know what you are doing
and the rest will sort itself out.
