Before the time when time began
before the very thought of man
within a void where there was nought
was essence of a single thought.

From whence it came none now can tell,
bred of void or heaven or hell
but as that thought began to grow
that single thought became a flow.

And thus remained for eons of time,
now time was there to draw the line
the tide of thought spread out its seed
now seeking to fulfil its need

Primeval need to find a place
where it could sample more than space,
where it could find a way to stand
and hold emotions in its hand.

As ages past, the seed now sown
developed into thoughts true home
and thought absorbed in lifeís new shell
still washed in void, and heaven and hell.

The human race must understand
that thought alone can rule this land,
no other thing can guide the way
it's thought that steers the way we play.

So void, or heaven, or even hell,
it's up to you to cast the spell,
donít blame all others for the way
you feel about the world today.

Just collect your thoughts, with them unite,
and when agreed prepare to fight.
For what you think, is how you play,
and how you spend your time today!

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

Think about it!
Bea, Eric, Lucie,

First thanks for your thinking on this one! "I think not enough thinking goes on in the world anymore," Yes. I agree too much techology takes away the need to think or gives you too much time playing with it to think.

On the other hand, if you get involved in sorting technologies problems out instead of just thinking, it can really make you think!

Back to Lit, I hope that ALL of the poetry I have posted makes at least a few people think, as it is what is not said that is usually the theme/meaning of the poems. As I feel that poetry is just the medium of delivery, to smooth the flow, I find this an excellent way to deliver my feelings.

Actually, if I was just to write my feelings as a true writer does I feel I would always just state my case and leave the reader nothing to think about. This would mean that I only got comments saying whether readers agree or disagree?

To me true poetry is when you read something and enjoy the story or theme without realising it is a poem but it was easy to read with the rhythm washing it into your mind.

Food for thought or thought for food????

1+1+Food= population

Life's whole formula revolves round food.

Any gardener will tell you seeds need feed or nothing will happen.

Maybe I am oversimplifying it but surely life is a food chain......

Quite rightly Bea wrote about food for thought I see life as a Fight for Food.

Those that are week die.... simple?

You feed the mind to keep ahead of the fight.

Must still have that soldier mentality, fight for what you achieve.

My first unit was 17/21st Lancers with the Skull and Crossbones cap badge..... Death or Glory

Stop fighting and you are dead.....
