Some poetry

Poetry pops up at me during the worst moments possible. Today, we had a rainstorm with some thunder, and as is the norm in India the power went out for the entire duration. I was standing in the balcony watching it rain, and this came to me:

"For time being I revel in the night.
All light has fled, the world is shadowed and dark;
All life asleep, with none of daytime's mark..
Meager, the sky flashes, to illuminate shadows deep,
Long and slow she rumbles, a lullaby for those asleep.
For now, I stand ensconced in Aveal's arms;
For time being, I revel in the night.
"

How is it? I'll post the rest as soon as I get it down.

Don't play chess with pigeons-they'll just knock over the pieces, shit on the board and strut about like they won anyway.

Some poetry

I still don't understand poetry much. I feel like it beats around the bush. Just say what you're bloody feeling instead of talking about the trees and skies and expecting me to understand what you're really talking about is like depression or something.

I guess being someone who leans more towards logic/technical in language more often than not, poetry is a bit annoying since it's like on the extreme opposite of the scale. Oddly enough I can pickup that sort of symbolism that is not completely language based(artistic like movies, music, art).

What if I (or the author) really was describing the trees, sky, and scenery because I (he/she) found it moving and beautiful? There is symbolism in poetry, but sometimes we do say what we want to in rhyming words.

The above snippet was me describing the night, and how beautiful I found it. That's all.

RE: Some poetry

Then you could say "the sky was beautiful". Being someone who leans towards logic (not that I lack emotion) I find it a waste of time (in most cases) to read some poetry that describes something that could be described in a short sentence. I dont think Ive yet stumbled on any poetry that I found appealing.

RE: Some poetry

Poetry is the language of the soul, a way of seeing the world in a whole nother light, the heart instead of the mind. Also poetry is based on emotion not logic, poetry is more artistic than a simple writing, like a painter who created a masterpiece. In fact, poetry could be the chosen way to describe the indescribable. Similar to in the bible, Jesus speaks in parables, saying that certain people can understand in simple sentences and others cannot accept in a different style. If logic is the only way one goes about in the world, they are not grasping life very well, logic is not enough, to know more about the ways of the world, reason must be dropped at times.
I guess that is why love is difficult to describe, it is a poetic feeling, one that cannot be described in words but through feeling, poetry is also a realization of the creativity within you.

Some poetry

22.12.16-23.12.16
[untitled poem]

A dreary gray and brown reality,
A glittering facade of fulfilled dreams,
Where ideals fly into walls and die,
Where nobody hears their screams.

Raw gems are invited in,
Promised to cut and polish and shine.
All individuality, unique traits shorn away,
For their greatest strengths-levied a fine.

The final obstacle is a mould.
If you fit, you're free-although your mind
Is shackled and bound. If you resist
You're back in the factory until you leave your soul behind.

A place where you are human no more,
But a set of numbers, values and grades.
Where you trade yourself for dubious gains,
And your shine and luster fades.

Even if we may not have a choice
But to go through this farce full of pointless pain,
We can find a way out and have a life outside.
We can keep our minds free, use everything to our gain.

We can submit our humanity at the door.
We can rebel and be dragged by our chains;
We can think and work around the shackles,
We can choose not to hurt and leave behind the pain.

Regardless of our choice we need to remember,
We cannot be bound unless we let ourselves be.
Mental chains are only as strong as we make them.
We can shatter them and be truly free.

Let's not feed the machine with more raw gems.
We can ensure our experiences won't be repeated.
Let's not reduce more people to products.
We can make sure a better world is created.

A world where each unique gem
Can be cut according to their individual needs.
A world in which ideas flourish and thrive,
Without unnecessary pain or abusive means.
