REFLECTION 2 Poem by Edmundo Farolan


Decisionless:
falseness inherent in our nature
as it is for walls who listen,
speak and shudder,
sometimes sweat,
sometimes think,
sometimes grow old in their inanimation.

Humility=humiliation.
The mind, a makeshift of devices in time and space.
Brainwashing to conform: this is the purpose of education.
Result=students do exactly the opposite. Conformity is limitation. Vagueness+Concreteness=Idiocy.
Life’s quest?
The nose that smells and the mind that visualizes.
