Poets' Vast Impact - Poem by Laura G Sweeney
Sometimes it feels like there's no place for philosophers
And poets in this world. They're engaged in work that
Helps support their true vocations. Maybe they do
Work beneath their horizons as a means of not contaminating
Their pure and original ideas. They do not care to lead others
Because leading others entails falsity and dishonesty.
Thus, one finds people in high places who are not the real,
Artisans, those who would do anything to save themselves and advance
Their careers rather than to create novelty for humanity.
To philosophers and artists, I beg you to continue to follow your dreams
And to write about your feelings
Because you have your visions to contribute to the other philosophers.
Everyone has his or her place in the universe, even as a writer,
And you can affect changes that bring about miracles in a walnut shell.
Life celebrates the moments of connection through branches
In the affectionate panorama that expands heaven's infinity...
In which we can fly into the vast and immense, infinite greatness
Of a mustard seed!
