You Ought To Know

Contributed by jamesstockdale on Wednesday, 31st January 2018 @ 11:40:51 AM in AEST
Topic: didactic

If not
how will
you ever grow
Your mind obviously was defined
from an older place and time
As far as the crow flies
your destiny may lie
Trapped in your shell
no freedom shall ever dwell
Forward you must go
Only an open mind can grow
This I thought, you ought to know

Darn good thought. Like Patton and Rommel....always advance- never retreat, never entrench. Always advance.

Good point, Sir James

You said it James! I never learned anything while my mouth was open.

// Thanks, I appreciate that!!!

Wait, what? I thought I did have an open mind. Hmmm.

My mind was definitely defined from an older time. Like 132 years ago.

Thanks man for setting off a reaction in me. I love it.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
