Art Of Reason


The knowledge, the common sense
The consideration, the revelation
The theory, the history
You can call it with many names

As explanation, as an excuse
As rejection, as a plea
As an escape, as a cause
You can use it in many ways

In words, in action
Whether accepted, whether debated
Whether right, whether wrong
You can find it in many forms

The reluctance, the hatred
The prejudice, the confusion
The war, the misunderstanding
You can be trapped in many levels

With honesty, with crocodile tears
With game of persuasion, with playing fact
With time precision, with good attitude
You can touch many people’s heart

Because it is dangerous, because it is forbidden
Because you care, because you scared
Because it is impossible, because it is foolish
You can make it as many as you want

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
