My Silent Chant


Quote of the day:
I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
-Galileo Galilei


How do i view the world in a different light, when darkness envelopes me deeply inside...
Outside all i see is the energy of birds...
wings flapping....so light against the gentle breeze...

What ever happened to our innocence??
-a little kid in an adventurous world, a little child whose only delight was just butterflies...

At this moment someone cries..
culture dies...
tears dry...
nobody dares to try anymore these days...

nobody cares to fight for what is right..
do you...
would you?

Look at us now....we've grown to a far distant height. Unable to reach down for anything -not even our freedom of expression...
I look at people sometimes and it just feels as if i can see through...

See through their souls...
feed their hunger with my goals, running this race of life on my toes...
I yearn for that of which cannot be explained but better imagined..

Imagine if tomorrow started today...
Now...
now is the time..

Believe...
run like the winds...
make the change, it's time....
if you are out there, tomorrow starts now...
can't wait any longer....
can you?


It is time...
It is TIME.

  3. i think the reason why, the 'innocence' seems to hv gone is cus, as you grow older you hv greater insight but the bigger issue is that you hv a choice; much like bob-ij; you need to do something to begin the process

  11. B happy monday first and foremost....

    And Yes
    the time to make a change and adjust is now, the innocence goes away when we discard our sense of wonder and amazement...look at lil children, everyday is an adventure , filled with thoughts of exploring and find out. u know what is weird, that when people get older, they loose that....the innocent part, the part of us ready to take a step without second thoughts, the part of us that want to know and find out about everything...everyday i try to hold on to that little bit of innocence, we need our sense of wonder in tact inorder to face our fears and navigate thru the intricases of life.

    ur silent chants have got me chanting along....keep 'em coming

    .

    i LOVE that G G quote btw, i wish alot of ppl will come to accept that. ignorance is not a virtue, the suspension of reason should not b the end goal.

  12. Beautifully Written!
    This poem....it resonates...it easy to point out things that need changing... but the actual act of changing them..usually gets postponed to the distant and ever retreating tomorrow.
    Like Ij said, one step at a time...

  14. @CC,First all here's wishing you the happiest of months...
    You've said it all,especially about the part where we lose our childish innocence after we've grown up-whatever happened to that curious part of us-ready to try out new things..that is the question that needs to be answered.
    Glad that you approve,as i couldn't agree with you more..
    I'm liking that quote too, wink*

    @*Diane*,appreciate that and glad you like it...
    One step at a time will do*
