Concepts 2


Troubled times troubled minds
Tend to walk a torrent trek
Cozy times cool minds
Carry the goal to finishing end

Makers of law made it to rule
Breakers of law force it to pale
More than the brains to construct
Shine the brains that destruct

Devil’s workshop is an idles mind
Says the proverb without bind
Frozen is the brain of an idle always
That neither thinks nor blinks!

    The poem has a nice flow. A good concept. An idle man's brain may be frozen but it amounts to a mind that is likened to a monkey which is drunken, has been bitten by a scorpion and is also lunatic. It has no cognitive power. So, the proverb has its force. See, people do not properly know how to tame their mind and recover from their boredom. Mismanagement of time leads to boredom. Mismanagement of mind leads to all evil thoughts. (Report) Reply
