The Idea Of An Idea


So many ideas you have conceived
Either at work or leisure,
But you have not perceived, the idea of me.
I am the idea, unconceived, the idea of anti reason,
Upheaval-tumultuous and juxtaposition.

I will break the old piece by piece
and create the new step by step, bit by bit.
i will stop the working of the logic and the reason,
with all the right justification.

The junk has to go.....
The new has to come....
We need to keep...
We need to continue the germination.

An idea remains an idea till it is materialized
No knowledge is workable untill it is realised.
No idea is an idea
If it does not remove ignorance and poverty
It will be an Utopian idea, guilty of impracticality.

I am here the unconceived idea
The new definition
The new perception
The true beauty, the true perfection
I know I am the dream, if you are after me
You will get fulfilled your much desired aspiration.

    The way you sustain the idea from this poem is mesmerisable. The idea of an idea, the dream of the dream & the passion of the passion comes together in your beautiful creation... Congratulation..! (Report) Reply

    At some metaphysical level the poem makes a lot of sense. We are able to conceive the idea and see it manifested but never know the power behind the creation of idea. Enjoyed the poem. (Report) Reply

    You write well, but this is, I feel, a bit lost, that needs more a specific contact to a real situation...this just drifts off
    and has so not the emotional impact your work deserves.. (Report) Reply

    I think this poem is actually about the idea of an idea (i.e the idea behind conceiving an idea) and I think the speaker of this poem is not the poet but the idea.

    Yes, the idea is speaking to us about how he(a perfect idea) could be concieved and how it would help in wiping the -ve things off the face of this world and how the peace of mind & soul could be achieved.

    BTW, nice poem...perfect literary sense combined with perfect ryhming in a poem gives a BLOCKBUSTER........as I think that poems with good literary sense but little or no rhymin could've been even more better with it..........and your poem has both so it's a BLOCKBUSTER... (Report) Reply

    this stanza reminds me of Russell's celebrated essay: Ideas -that have harmed mankind...it also has something to do with the utopian ideals....your poem is meaningful & v good... (Report) Reply

    Wow! Congratulation! You are one of the few lucky to find and good mentor to help you in developing your writing skills! Ideas can move mountains but they must be unique and clearly defined in order to work, however, when they are freely expressed without precautions, they can be stolen by heartless and selfish people who will get credits for them! This is an excellent proof of how much you have learned from this great mentor found! 10+++ Thank you for sharing and keep it up! God Bless You! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City!

    Very very beautiful piece, , I admire you use logic with the rhyme...quite a rare thing to view, , Mind is rational, and you can feed it with naught but reason, , , so your poem is a food for the mind...well done poet 10 (Report) Reply

    Ideas are like sperms.They are an army of millions like me spitting everyday.But one lucky one has the key to be the man, to be hero without the prior knowledge he actually has had it.Otherwise ideas die and terminate to ideas again somehow.Somewhat evolutioned.Perhaps dreams they are called from desired aspirations.

    Your idea of poetry is better as mine.It can lead to more ideas as such.So dream on and egg on more ideas.. (Report) Reply

    This is simply spectacular :) I completely agree with your poem, that there is so few people who dream and believe in illogical things, but you, and I are a couple of them. Brava! (Report) Reply

    Indeed the world has progressed with the conceived idea for progress and love i.e the population...thanks for the ideas...regards (Report) Reply
