the neglected  kernel

the neglected kernel

A Poem by Latifa
"

the self apocalypse is hard, defying but worth it

"





We accuse the epiphany truth of abstraction,
yet we chase knowledge:
 the unveiled truth that was once abstract.
Loathing to roam in the lightless corridors of self:
we descend to survival mode.

Foolishly, we cut the celestial placenta
with the knives of hubris egos
to  declare the Sovereign of the universe,
yet immortality is out of reach.

Dauntless, we sail through the tangible space that surrounds us, yet we're still on the harbor of the inner noesis.

Hypocritically,
we berate ignorance to glorify the knowing
and callously neglect the insisting truth.

In moments of solitude,
revelation comes manifesting;
wearing the uniform of questions:

why we're here?
what's the purpose of life?

Well, forsake the survival mode;
venture in an introverted self tasting
 and wander into your neglected kernel to glimpse the truth.

Would that more poets write of simple truths. Such a poem as this brings clarity and one hopes a readjustment of values. Springing from a kernel; yet what burgeoning fields are made from such kernels?

As always, I appreciate your exploration and demonstration of my heart language. What I take for granted you display in colorful tapestry. Thank you.

Loathing to roam in the lightless corridors of self:
we descend to survival mode.
such an exquisite write. And it is how we live, isn't it.

thank you once again
You are a amazing writer. So many lines stood out in the amazing poetry.
"Well, forsake the survival mode,
venture in an introverted self tasting,
wander into your neglected kernel to glimpse the truth"
The above lines were my favorite. Sometime we must take chances. Better to be fearless than afraid of life and unknown. No weakness in the outstanding poetry.

No answers without questioning the status qua, the mystery of the universe, the timeless manifestations. You have raised some wonderful ones here. I can tell you are a thinker. Bravo.....................
