Blindness - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

I cannot discuss in poetic form
Medical lingo about heart aliments
Nor can I even attempt to inform
Legal aspects to any court clients.

My lack of adequate information
And the absence of required expertise
Nullifies my frail qualification
Thus making my words quite foolish.

Just as it's futile to delineate
Divine attributes and Identity
When one is totally inadequate
In experience, of Truth's veracity.

For how can soul Blindness perceive to see
Discuss what it knows not, extensively?
Self deception conjures realities
Hidden in Pride are the treacheries.

< br>
'A fool finds no pleasure in Knowledge but delights in airing his own opinions.'

Proverbs 18: 2

    @Veeraiyah - I believe we cannot discuss anything under the sun - in poetical form or prose - since we do not have enough knowledge of everything. Just as the poem said - I cannot attempt to discuss heart ailments adequately because I am not a doctor of Medicine, likewise i cannot discuss legalities because I am not a lawyer (though the basic idea of law is there) . In relation to such, a person who has never experienced the Truth of God cannot, in justification, write comprehensively about Him simply because all he has is head knowledge sans the spiritual validity. Therefor that comprehension is FLAWED and simplistic, myopic and subjective and not really about the truth. It is just the author's limited perception BASED on his own narrowed view. (Report) Reply

    Cynthia, Anything can be written in poetical form, as long as we have enough knowledge and convey the message. If people find something wrong, they will notify us immediately. Actually I would like to write some science related poems, but it may not have as much appeal as the poems which are written based on the five elements, sun, moon, spirits, devils and dreams.
