Verse 1:  Achilles Heel

Verse 1: Achilles Heel

A Chapter by Glen Yumang Manese


Achilles Heel

 

Fly again, what a glorious moment to escape imprisonment.

Take off runway at the speed of light to be pure energy.

Build contraption travels from place to place is ideal answer.

Know not why some impossibility stands still for the moment.

They can touch sky and empty realm around circumference.

Brilliant minds converse about moon and desolate red planet of dust.

Reach for something they cannot, but a thinking cap of reasoning.

Laughter or tears with hours in calculation of the next big bang theory.

All in due time will answer possibilities that question.

There are two parts to human anatomy of matter and spirit.

Mind is a beautiful organ to waste here on a small life-giving entity.

Life must trade for life and death is just a brief corridor to free soul.

Science questions for facts and my belief is a higher power to eternity.

Achilles heel disrupt for now all parables in a better way of life.

Technology of human intervention is toys to the toddler.

Dreams are expansive to the heavens and limited to isolation.

Enjoy-in the vivid colors of mastery called a universe.

Matter is right in front of you to know a world of ours.

Pegasus wings are on two feet, but man made from creative mind.

Do not say to do nothing, but understand human ethics.

There is such hope in this line...This is an impressive write on mind and matter...We as a race are unique in that our minds are indestructible, our essence lives on out of our bodies!

If you liked this one...and like a longer read --- have at it with: Astrological...
I like the pace and flow here - much like the thought patterns I see myself going through that are seemingly random yet connected in overall scope. True to the mind that we so much see as chaos when we introspect upon ourselves, this speaks to the process we all go through.

Reminds me of some of my disjointed pieces and part of Chuck Palahniuk novels I adore.

Thanks for your time and review...yes...the importance of in depth --- thought process is present...
I felt like flying out to another time and galaxy, with very tranquil light and full of music. this space is endless and the deep philosophy can be felt well, when you are so high there and view all from above...Really many questions to think, in the same time all is so clear in front of my eyes. Beautifully described.♥
My favorite verses:
Mind is a beautiful organ to waste here on a small life-giving entity.
Life must trade for life and death is just a brief corridor to free soul.

My favorite dream is when I fly...

Very reflective and introspective, though there is a slight lack of emotion in this piece. Beautiful imagery and imagination, but nothing in the scope this work to "tug at the reader's heart"... Very good...

I like this piece. It touches on science and imagination. One of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is "Imagination is more important than knowledge." And I completely agree. Knowledge only tells us what IS. Imagination inspires us to DREAM of what COULD BE... Your wording is phrased like someone who has not known English as a primary language in the home...it is a cultural keynote but I found the wording more endearing for the phraseology. It lends the words and observations within the piece a bit of cultural flavor. And the seasoning is just right.
