The Reason And The Anti-Reason

Submission to God without reasoning repels me a lot,
Puppet-ism makes my blood hot,
Bleeds me into two horns,
Reasoning encourages me to ask,
Are the hands of the supreme to judge?

Atheism with profound reason,
Makes me more angry-
Reason is chocked in the clutches of anti -reason.
If expansion is the rule of reason,
Shrinking is, of course, the anti-reason.

Wisdom prefers to take a line-
A line of golden mean,
This makes me a fan of God,
A man of free thinking-full of liberty,
Having a pleasure to live in this world with high dignity.

    Solid phase bombarding the liquid phase! ! ...disperse and dissolve or just no....like ice bordering line in oil...the questions of something like this always avoidable for many people as they think, there's lot of things to do (that's the reason) but they are anti-reason that's why they dont want to listen any explanation...and that a sad thing to bear..Like an emulsion oil and water still can united as colloidal phase..when reason talk ear must open to understand...anyway anti reason always have reason why there are like that_Unwritten Soul

    This idea of anti-reasoning comes like a void to me; it's more like the absence of reasoning; ; and therefore the lines
    'Reason is chocked in the clutches of anti -reason.
    If expansion is the rule of reason,
    Shrinking is, of course, the anti-reason.'
    are the bottom-lines of the poem; except that fact; it is a out of box and well written poem! ! !

    And so the debate begins, my friend...
    perhaps we may agree to disagree - agreeably! ?

    The poet know what to say when comes to the questionable answer... but God and our submission are sometimes require more than solid factual reason; it require comprehension and overall point of view.
    Excellent poem and solid statement in supporting reason to submit and live as a god's follower.

    the world is expanding with reason
    what is the reason of shrinking? -
    Is this anti -reason? perhaps yes'
