An Idea is..

An Idea is..

A Poem by H. A. M.
"

what if an idea was more than an idea?...

"

When philosophies bleed over into each other….

And professors

or smooth talkers

try to convince the other

 

that

their truth is the right one…

I wonder…

does this idea have a life

under the sun?

 

Is it an entity?

    ...a living thing?

        ...is that why it fights?

 

                     …to save itself?           

          …to stay alive?

 

                  Can I say

        that the evidence of life

        is the struggle to survive?

 

...it wouldn’t fight to stay in existence

 if it did not have

some kind of conscience.

 

           …else

          …it would roll over like a rolling stone

              …so suicide is out of the equation

 

                      Why?

 

          I’ve never heard of an idea kill itself.

              They just die with the orator

                     who killed himself.

                    I wonder….

                   Did the idea survive

              …another movement?...

                              or an

                 unseen battle in a universe

                 …where spirits collide…?

 

Just another field of thought to graze in….

Whose truth is the ultimate truth? Is one “ism” paramount to another? Are these so called “truths” mortal? Do they have a soul? They live on through the years....all the varied philosophies. Vital principles of philosophy never die. If a philosopher dies, his ideas will be picked up by another....if they were worthy ideas. That’s just my take on your poem, H.A.M......and your words are nothing if not thought provoking. Glad to read you again. Lydi**

you did not over think this, this is beauty thought itself progressing in contemplative breath format and tune while wrapping around heads and sinking in thourgh ears. its different but its just as good making its way from eyes to soul. i've missed your words.
