The Power of an Idea

Ideas are divine portals
into the potentiality
of our birth,
our civilization,
our truth revered.
Ideas gave us freedom,
gave us law,
rights
and justice;
ideas are the reasons why
we never pull our punches.
Though they bring
self-righteousness
and conceit,
ideas can also
set us free,
from believing that we
were born to stay
in a spiritual poverty
to the awakening of our spirit
to the birthright of man:
that we were born for liberation
to take it if we can.

The power of the mind
is the power to divine
a world in which principles
are not constantly
weakening in the hands
of an apathetic
populace.
A world in which
we would want to
raise our children
to believe
that we could live
not only peacefully
but lovingly with others,
independent of class,
race,
gender,
or sexual orientation,
without the fear of economic,
political
or
psychological defamations.
Whether eternal,
and immutable
or
self-evident
and morally irrefutable,
ideas changed man,
moved nations,
and turned history.

Some would tell
that reason is
a slave to our passions.
Are we dogs or men,
is the question that
we need to examine.
To truly be free
we have to learn how
to think.
An education isn’t just a means
for putting money in the pocket,
it should foster knowledge worth guarding
lest our ideas become
nothing more
than technological equations,
as our passions have
bent to the whims
of sexual stimulations.
Our culture started with
and is still in the hands of
our minds,
let us not disgrace
our forefathers
by letting this
precious commodity
decline.
