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

    Our thoughts do all wonders! They can either mar or mend a relationship, enhance or destroy life itself! A thoughtful write! (Report) Reply

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
