HOW CAN POETRY SAVE THE WORLD


Poetry has long been neglected, as if, it is mere a fantasizing tool. That incomplete view often cripples many of my fellow poets. Today I'll disclose my original thoughts expecting a vigorous society of poets around me.

I obtained poetry as a lens system. We can make it convex, concave, flat, or a combination of some of these.
As the convex lens can converge sunrays to light a fire, poet's lines can accumulate enough energy to burn any message in mass. As the concave lens can diverge rays, poetic lines can dissipate threads of depressive thoughts away to make a mind calm. At least, we can make a plain mirror of our lines to show the world what true is.

Dreaming imagery, what many great souls might have considered unethical, impractical, and untrue, is just one of the infinite possible views that poetry can cast. We'll decide how far real, or dreamy, our lines are going to be; we can. Also, unless we step beyond what is accepted as today's safe true, how could we find the confirmed truth for tomorrow? Poetry can show the way.
Politicians, saints, scientists, sport persons, media persons, and so on, all are focusing their excellence to better the world. Are poets the exception? No ways. We may empathize for those who failed to perceive how far poetry could span.
Human feelings shape the world and poets can compose human feelings. That's all. Let's compose a beautiful world.
