A Basis For Philosophy

What is basis for philosophy to usher?
How does it gain ground and prosper?
How other intelligent person can be influenced?
How one’s own self can be forgotten or reduced?

These are unanswered questions and has no solution
You may be right in assertion with quick resolution
I helps to analyze the real situation and help the an kind
New ways are there but you must have vision to find

There is imaginative construction to show superiority
No one has gone deeply into this perception with serenity
There is no logical road which strengthen this belief
Momentarily it provides some solace or relief

Philosophy searches out reality which in fact is basis
There is no lack on knowledge or any special thesis
It is completely independent of our action
It has no bearing on anybody’s reaction

The other thesis has task of giving fine character of their knowledge
It should meet the requirement without cutting any edge
They may be very inferior and seek o penetrate
The philosophy is not newest method to corroborate

The other theories have got power in its science
The philosophy has will power and conscience
It has no mystical way of proving the superiority
It is formidable and dramatic things with fine quality

Each science accepts its own limitations and improves
It will make it self independent of others and disprove
It will never accept hegemony or any jurisdiction
No one may like to go down with similar instructions

Physical phenomenon can never be doubted
Only new theories can be inducted
It demonstrates the nature’s docility to other theories
It has made permanent place in our memories

Philosophy is concern of an individual
He may be performing the role in double
He may have dubious distinction of being unfair
Still it rules over large part and considered fair


It is wise or clever men’s refuge
No one may argue in favor or refuse
It helps to some extent the crisis to defuse
It is device in circuit to serve as fuse

It trips off the moment there is some blockade
The memory may sharpen and not fade
This is not merchandise or commodity for trade
It is right time to call spade a spade

The philosophical concept is to be on right direction
We should be prepared to go in that particular
It can’t be confined to any particular intelligent group
It has to be performed on stage in the form of troupe

    'The philosophical concept is to be on right direction.' Who knows what is the right direction? I liked the philosophical thoughts of the poet.

    There is imaginative construction to show superiority
    No one has gone deeply into this perception with serenity
    There is no logical road which strengthen this belief
    Momentarily it provides some solace or relief.............Very significant in this world of competition and strife, even in the field of knowledge.

    your conceptualisation on philosophy is very fine. thinking, emotions, feelings coined together it becomes poetic philosophy. thank u for sharing.
