Human Mind

Human mind…

one's mind is what one wants to be,
godly or devilish what he wishes to be.

I perform arts and science,
with grave significance,
to share a little, of what little I know;
you all are elements of knowledge so.

Wisdom comes to those alone,
who silently and patiently observe
that appears very slow,
though I find it steadily grow.

They feel we all must know
as drops add to water’s flow,
and widen the sea
so like becomes our knowledge be.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


A vast ocean of shared knowledge and experience - the more drops the bigger the ocean! Perhaps being part of the vast oceanic sea isn't such a plight after all! he he

Thought provoking!

Your logic is as evasive as a termite heap again, you have written a riddle, that only you can know the answer, therefore it loses it's riddle format.
We can be compared to a termite heap, though that is bad for the termites, at least they will not try to destroy themselves.
Of late I have taken to writing fiction as it is more believable than fact, what does your books on the mind say of these things young Bard.
I think therefore I am, so I think that it is better to just be me, than try to change what quite a few years has tempered.
Loved we journey but once here, it is a lonely journey young Bard, as there are many things to try and do, then the realisation of futility wraps its tendrils around us shutting off the air that sustains us.
It is good to be here for a while where we can learn of many things, yet should I tarry at this junction of life to pick up some dust from the pathway to drop it, only to find that the wind is at my back, as I thought it was..
I shall retire to my cave and stand at the entrance, watching life go by, and render a smile to the continuance of all things ,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
