Absolutes - Poem by Kelly Kurt

What is, is
What isn't, isn't
It cannot be both
It cannot be neither
Not my rules
Just the way it works

    Whatever I think, exists somewhere,
    what I cannot think exists nowhere,
    whatever exists, it exists with a law,
    and if a flaw, it's my thinking's flaw!

    To recognize that one's thinking can sometimes be flawed, is a start on the path to wisdom

    Absolutes are always absolutes..... there is no in between. Nothing equivocal....... no chance for a grain of doubt as two and two are four! Very logical! (Report) Reply

    In any place (and by any other name) a rock is a rock. It is not, not a rock, It is not both or neither. Nothing beyond is implied but that premise

    such is the foundation of logic

    A few words, a lot said. You explain life with precision n depth. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Thank you, Nosheen. From this universal truth, logic flows and premises lead to conclusions that have truth value
