In the Western world, poetry is a dying art form….. As art becomes extinct or ignored, so does the civilization. Or, at the very least, the art being created, or the absence of it, reflect the spiritual condition of the individuals in the civilization. Personally, I have discovered that writing poetry is very therapeutic. It creates inner peace, perspective, serenity, spiritual insights, and aesthetic reverie.
Modern “poetry” is most often expressed in the Lyrics of songs. Have you listened to very much “popular” music lately? In the U.S. the most popular (best selling) music is “country music”. The lyrics to the majority of these songs are written specifically to appeal to the LOWEST common denominators of human “intelligence”: sex, cowboys, beer, trucks, parties, and the “idealized lifestyle” of the working-class peasant, jealousy, failed romance, and, did I mention sex? Fundamentally, modern “music” is all about making money. Like the rest of Western “civilization”, which is an artificially created mirage, bought and paid for by NWO bankers, legislated by criminal politicians, enforced by a psychotic military-police-state, and propagandized into “popularity” by the Global Media Machine — everything is about MONEY, Power, Control and Possessions…. and did I mention sex?
There is a quiet, simple remedy for the insane, manic, soulless absurdity created by the artificial environment of television, Hollywood films and the internet.
It is a simple form of “meditation”: Turn off the TV, turn off your cell-phone, turn ON Your Soul. Write a poem.
If you wonder sometimes why you feel depressed, overwhelmed, stressed out, purposeless and alone, you may find Your SELF while writing a poem.
I prefer HAIKU. How about you?
