Pre-History - Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

Something
in the head
freezes the mind.
If I could rip open
my brain
and alter
the egoism
and atrocities beneath,
some lives
could have been saved.

Or perhaps,
I’d just
bury the brain.
End of genocide.

    what a miracle you have made

    to manipulate the mind within' - asif

    We often wonder about the uselessness of a mayhem. But when it evokes a creation of an art piece or beautiful poem, we astound at what mayhem exists for. Very well written, friend. (Report)Reply

    In my opinion, fear is at the basis of perpetrated horrors against humans and animals/creatures. Self-saturating dogma satisfies the fear, feeds our egos and justifies separating from others, killing them, ad infinitum. Basic rule of psychology is to get to the root of the fear. We have invented 'isms' to protect ourselves, set us apart, keep us from doing the necessary work to understand the causes of fears which have kept us living as tribes. We know that the mind can be retrained, redirected, and it can easily learn new concepts. Only way any of that can take place is to have all of us face our fears and admit to them. Little by little, working consciously, accepting our faults and weaknesses, loving ourselves, yes, we can remove the drama and unite and be filled with universal love and caring. (Report)Reply

    You're quite right, Sulaiman, we're a rotten and destructive lot - how strange that we can write such fine poetry!
