    One Good Idea

    Ever toss one good Idea in the Sea of Fate
    'Cause some kin or buddy said it had no weight?
    When the next one came that trembled your soul,
    those fingers of Doubt only strangled it cold.

    No diploma, certificate or college degree
    was required to envision what your vision did see
    For the God within pulsed a Light sublime,
    that One-Good-Idea that was yours for the time.

    Its had civilization running after learning to walk
    Babies making speeches after learning to talk
    Scientists, explorers letting loose their Fear
    Man marching forward on One-Good-Idea.

    And Faith held together by the glue of Belief
    will rocket that Idea pass the hands of a thief
    who hoped to impart some poisoning corruption
    only to find he's been caught in Its suction.

    Perhaps, there's the crux of an Idea so true,
    Its power to magnetize and vibrate in you
    To exalt our Love, to diffuse our Fear
    like an H-bomb of Change is
    One-Good-Idea

    ain't that the truth...i like how you broke it down and tied it all together by talking about action...the meter was smooth and the rhymes were right on time. wisdom drop, poet!
