Now We Think We Are Not

To live
We need to take
A different look at life
To see things
In a far more natural light
We live expecting
That which we will see
Even
We expect to happen
What we want to be
Just as pride
That comes before a fall
It seems we think that we control
And know it all
And so it is
We cannot understand
Why nature carries on
Intent on it’s own plan
Oblivious
And so indifferent to puny man
That we in desperation
Then look round
To find a place
A face
To point a finger at
Where blame
May be attached
A culprit found
There is no blame
For this is life we live
For here
We walk with beasts on dangerous ground
Where natures forces are at work
With ice and rock
A test
For places next
Perhaps
Where we are bound
The trouble is
It seems we have so long forgot
This world
Of which we are a part
That now
We think we are not

Thank you...We have unknowingly isolated ourselves in a prison of our own making ..

NPOEM
Well spotted. It means it is a "Non Poem", or more accurately "A cloud of probabilities" arising from an area of vacuum within my brain decaying via weak interaction usually into chi plus pi.

Less than 50 have ever been seen.

Egal..

I, like the view said...

why do you put two full stops after your name? is it a sort of a trade mark, or short for something?

I'm jusy being curious again, so ignore me if you will. . .

Egal Bohen said...

Er... they are not full stops.

They are proton detectors. When protons collide with them they get rid of energy (a bit like a poet chucking out old poems I believe).

This encourages me to do the same

Its all to do with the gigantic cosmic dance of creation and destruction.

Its a bit like going round in circles.

(I am not being rude when I answer your fascinating enquiries like this - it is just that I think that this type of answer is much more interesting for you.

And anyway what I am telling you is not untrue - because I had never thought about it before and I have only now just decided that that is what they are (proton detectors)

OK?

Peculiar isn'r it

BTW - STS means "So to Speak"

I am just picking up some blogging methods that save typing commonly used phrases - except that this one may not be commonly used (except by OGH poets)

HANN (Have a nice night)

I am going to chuck out some old poems

I, still, like the views said...

proton detectors

you?, or your?
Very glad you found it interesting anyway - imagination is so essential!
Sincerely,
