The robotic nature of man

The robotic nature of man
continues as long as he says
I can. When he recognises
that he cannot then he might start
to work toward an essential
rhythm of survival. In this
he will join a natural world
already existing around
him that he is oblivious
of. It will take some time for the
realisation that he should learn
to kill an enemy once in
every thousand years. When he
understands this simple fact of
life, he may begin the journey
toward Being. there are many
steps to this. the first one is to
realise that he is not what he
thinks he is, unlike a tree,
a flower or beast of the field
that live with no interference
from themselves. Man, due to his whims
is constantly being altered
to no advantage except the
Devil and his minions, who are
always present and laying in
wait for this sleeping wreck that has
been given every chance
to reach the pinnacle of which
he is intended, but to which
possibility he is blind.
The ways are many, the steps are steep.
Hesitation, doubt will sweep one
off the route. To recognise that
breath is given and is not earned
that thought can be obscenity.
The heart we know is treacherous
so full of love and hate, of which
there is often unsurety
as to which is functioning.
Or which should be. Compassion is
spoken of as though he owned it.
But compassion for oneself is
far removed from his knowledge of
understanding of anything.
The robotic nature of man
if seen can appraise him of the
fact that he owns nothing and that
he has earned nothing. His talents
have been buried, he has forgot
the purpose for his existence.
Wake up comes the clarion call
through the ages fro sources
sent from above?." Awaken" they
have said," Awaken, Rise up and
work, greet the dawn with all your might
and don’t give in without a fight."
" Seek and ye shall find" said the Man
" Awake, Begin, see if you can.
See if you now can overcome
thw robotic nature of man.

An excercise in syllabic

verse, with eight symbolising an
octave which represents for man
his descent from heaven and his
possibilities of return

one among many seeking the light
that is showing the way to work
Incomplete,unedited I
make no excuse for this .Amen

An eclectic wannabe writer/photographer/artist with toes that dip into the waters of philosophy/religion and politics and hands that used to dig into the earth but with a body that doesn’t bend so easily now " reduced? " ‘only’ to the sights and scents of Nature.

    This is very deep and makes sense, you have captured the way mankind thinks, their hearts and souls.
    The essence of failures and similarity. How we are all connected in the core things. We need to look around and make a change, break the robot chain. The cloned way we are molded.
    Very well expressed!

  • Yes, break the robot chain :)) Hm, that may be a title in itself LOL :-))
