Conscience Thought 

By

Carlos Lorenzo Estrada 


Know,

Ideas are as strong as the mind that wields them
Malleable as the faith that seeks their conformity

From springs of philosophy great utopias arise
While idioms of sacrament capture uniformity


Alas,


A line is thin between logic and desideratum belief
what lies between the two resides our moral conscience

They may hold equal sway upon an undaunted thought 
in the end only truth prevails against rhetorical nonscience



For,


emotions can be led astray by propagandist cunning words
as manipulation in alternative facts seek pernicious influence 

A society must be mindful of its information resource
to separate the lies and fiction which conspire towards congruence 



Truth,

Is as undeniable as a moral eye can see
But to the unethical heart it is pliable to will


Blind is the faith that leads you falsely 
Towards the facts which righteousness instill



Illuminates...

Author's Note

Carlos Lorenzo Estrada
I tried to call my muse Cate for some advice but found I didn't have her number. Since she really isn't real I attempted to reach her by Astral plane telepathy. Not knowing how it actually worked I found I may have contacted a devil instead. I asked said devil, who goes by uncle Rudy, if he had any sage advice. He said "Yeah, bro, make sure you burn all the evidence. " I was left unsure how truly profound that advice may have been until perusing my porn collection and figuring out hey maybe he was onto something wise after all. It was then that my muse called me, which was surprising because I don't remember giving her my number. She told me she was in a heavy make out session with both Plato and Socrates and to write these words down. I found it a bit difficult because of all the moaning through the phone, mostly from me out of jealousy, but I think I got the gist of the message. Feel free to leave thoughts or comments. Even if you want to troll I'm Kool with that. Thank you and may the swartz be with you.

Simple truths are not always easy to find in these days of "fake news" and state controlled media (in Russia, for example). We can usually find the truth if we dig deep enough, but so many people are willing to believe far-fetched conspiracy theories these days than accept a simple truth. A fascinating write - and author's comment!

Talking heads spewing alternative facts. Blind faith that what they read on the internet is truth. Your poem is good, and illuminating! The philosophers can only get our attention by cloaking the truth in pornography. This is an intense poem Carlos. Glad to read you again.

I love this poem....and I often wonder if we really need logic...
I feel blind faith can be comforting as long as we don't end up seeing a truth that disturbs into
insanity.

This is a very timely piece, given the glut of misinformation the airwaves are currently awash in. You are very right about the cunning of propagandists, and with the electronic media at their disposal, they are able to beguile millions. Putin has 83% of Russia believing he's the good guy.

Hello, Carlos! :)
This is an interesting collection of words. My mind found it a bit chewy for a Monday evening read, so I shall retreat for now, and try again between this weekend’s stuff.
