Misguided Hope - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Science has shown that we are but beasts
History has proven that science is correct
Fundamental particles arranged through laws
Causation conducting corollaries in progression
Free will illusory, fate determined and final
Consciousness an emergent artifice
Grasping the legitimacy of this evidence
I still innately feel there is something more
Not faith, but misguided hope

Topic(s) of this poem: hope, life

    Science and what has been proved is certainly remarkable. So many truths we may not know the answers in this lifetime. (Report) Reply

    There are things that even science can neither prove nor disprove

    'Not faith, but misguided hope'

    Very well said Kelly... Having faith in ONESELF is good, but to expect that having faith in someone else, be it a human or deity, can actually lead us to nowhere...

    We are the architect of our own destinty most of the times.. At least our success or failure depends almost entirely on ourselves.. To deny this fundamental truth is to deny ourselves of our own lives...

    Thank you for sharing.. It's a very nice poem...

    Thank you, Souren. Hope is often accompanied by expectation, and so no action

    '' Not faith, but misguided hope ''

    yes, Kelly, it's my own set of thoughts, too.. Yet, as human beings, we can't help but go on hoping.. We should use Dante's line (from his 'Inferno') , when 'each and every' newborn joins mankind: '' Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate.''
    ['Inferno', canto III, v.21 - '' Abandon all hope, you who enter here '']

    What made us beast is not physically beast but mentally beast
    History has shown this again and again
    Physics cant even read illumination of ideas
    No law for collision of ideas to bombard to be an universe of understand
    because it so metaphysics, rules are hard to bend
    They are more than we may thought we know
    because we know everything we know
    but we dont know everything that we dont know
    you said not faith but misguided hope
    but many thinks it is the same
    but i refused to conclude any claim
    because to tell everything we dont know
    is how what make us part of beast
    and history keeps showing again and again

    Hahaha yes, that's the big thing we need to remind ourselves before we make a conclusion :)

    Thanks for the comment, Soul. We don't know what we don't know, and that is a lot for sure.
