Hunger and thirst my companions

Hunger and thirst my companions

A Poem by poetry-kiddo alienbaba
"

What it feels like to be hungry....for food maybe but more for knowledge...what thirst is ...less water ....for a plant and its seed....

"







Hunger is a wonderful thing....
It makes one see so clearly.....
Drawing you closer to the primary Matrix....
The reason...the source...the cause..........

And thirst is my life long companion..
On an integral everlasting journey...
Whatever destiny may bring.....
Or cost me dearly...
Nay not in Earthly money...
I will accept its unknown tricks....
Accept them I will....and gladly!

die of hunger and thirst
in a crowd at the mall I feel this-I have nothing in common with them I do not care about name brands,I feel the pain all around me,young ladies with bad boy friends,a mommy who is all dolled up when her young child is filthy,an old lady be shoved aside for a clearance item...I starve to death on the realities I see
then they over pay for things they can't afford,makes them angry only because they know they cannot afford them...I die of thirst on the inside
I have felt this many times I have tears now thinking of people and what they do it is human nature I guess but then why don't I feel like this...because I have starved I have been thirsty for all things knowledgeable and right
right is right and that is it to me fine sir
thank you sorry I ran on, Holly

Dear Alienbaba

I thought I would pop over and see how you were doing.

So I picked this off the top of your list.

As ever the thinker, the philosopher, I see.

Have I ever felt I would die of hunger and thirst?

Yes. In three ways. Because:

1) The tangible articles were not to hand;

2) The intangible wasn't to hand, like in an intellectual desert; and

3) Because my desire for the intangible was so great that in finding it I went into sensory overload.

Life is nothing but perverse.

As Albert Camus put it in L'Etranger: 'Tout est vrai et rien n'est vrai.' Everything is true and nothing is true. It all depends on perspective and the meaning of the question asked.

You may know this but:

The plot behind the Camus' L'Etranger is this guy (Meursault) is on trial for murder.

The prosecution try to make him seem cold hearted and ruthless, because apparently it had been reported he didn't cry at his mother's funeral.

The prosecution put in the witness box someone who had been at the funeral too and asked him, 'Did you see the defendant cry at his mother's funeral?'

This fellow mourner answered, 'No!'

The defence counsel then stood up and asked the same witness the question, 'Did you see Meursault at all during the funeral?.'

His answer to that question was also 'No'

So everything is true and nothing is true. It all depends on the question!

So what was the question again?

A nice piece on the philosophy of hunger and thirst, in reality and in metaphor.

In all good humour

Your friend

And it's nice to have you, Alienbaba, as my friend. James
Philosophical to me. I have indeed pondered this before, particularly after reading a strange sci-fi awhile back. I think you bring a light to a dark topic that happens all to often in this world yet remains vastly ignored. Because of this, I would actually like to see this one longer. Perhaps heartfelt details on the process of starvation.
