NaPoWriMo Day 18 – The Best Medicine

medicine

What is the therapy of life?

The perfect mentality which

brings human to human (or to

self) and sets us on the wavelength of success?

 

Less muscles than usual sends

creases along

the frame of the face,

erupting, either gently under boiling

oceans or

catastrophically, bubbling and burping outward

into unfathomable, continuous

space:

the typical remedy for a lackluster

grind. Is this not simply a cover

up of the symptoms?

A way to ignore the true source

of our failings, we cling to

distraction and distortion of the truth

around us; not

necessarily

a negative in our lives, just a

misinterpretation of what it truly is,

a want for a good laugh to literally

cure the ailments of

the world. Where,

then,

are the true cures of our time?

 

What brings out the white blood cells of society,

strengthens them, provokes

them into action against the diseases

fighting to penetrate

us day by day?

 

 

I think I will likely continue this poem into tomorrow. I like this concept, but I don’t want this to be too long. You can find out my personal view tomorrow. In the meantime, what do you think? What is the medicine of humanity?

  1. I like this scientific/medical reference to “the white blood cells of society” in your ‘sociological poem’. The same issues are interesting me (as signalized in my previous posts), but in more direct/practical approach and I look forward your tomorrow’s poetic conclusions/developments.
