A War In You


Oh! Mankind
Behold the battle in you, inside
Blazing blisteringly spectacular
Of the grand two
Mind claims superiority
Over intellect by virtue of its motion
Intellect does the same over mind
For its quality of conviction
They engage
Under the grip of greed
And enticed by the dazzling desire
To be hegemonic,
The basic cause within
Behind every war and conflict

    excellent. When mind and intellect come together in harmony then and only then war will cease. (Report) Reply

    The mind preceeds the intellect, the house where it resides.
    When the hegemony has no longer power to rule then war and chaos become the rule.
    And only when the mind's intellect rises to the occasion will war be put to an end. (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
