A Concept on Thought

Thoughts are powerful.
Such concepts of the mind
Are ever forming images
And ideas of every kind.

Thoughts are multipurpose.
Multitasking too.
And here are some things
That they are known to do.

Thoughts make and mold,
Pierce and console.
They are known to drive.
Unite, or divide.

Thoughts can destroy,
And they can create.
They're used to support,
Or to debate.

Thoughts are powerful
And interesting too.
The list could be endless
As to what they can do.

    I really like this; for it is very interesting how thoughts come about, work, and finally express themselves through our words... words, whether spoken or written, that so often are misunderstood or not understood at all by so many; and yet we feel a need to express them, even if only for ourselves.
    Thank you for these words (thoughts) you have so wonderfully shared here with us, they are great, they are yours! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
