Philosophers Interpreted The World But? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Is it the words of revered
philosophers that you idolized?
philosophers only interpreted the world
put people cultures concepts sorted
into symbolic boxes sorted filed locked
philosopers the point often overlooked
the point is not to label know the world
the point is a new world changed

interpret the world or change the world?
reader philosopher understands a world read?
can a world read really be intricacies grasped
not sweated experienced be understood?
Is the only way to understand the world
by acting upon the world? changing the world?
