    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 to tremble 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.

    It's 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 past 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.
    Boom !

    1poetsought – Often when we feel that an idea just might work, the adrenaline surges, pupils of the eyes dilate, nostrils flare open and for a moment there is a detonation, Boom!, that signals the birth of Belief made of Faith. Thanks 1poetsought. Namyh

    Yes, I can think of more than a few good ideas that were cast aside, and the weight of them...quite heavy, seemingly, too heavy at the time to put forth. Loved how you delivered this powerful message poet.

    Rich – It isn’t status that separates Men. It’s not even wealth or profession that does it. It’s the absence of an Idea in one man and the presence of an Idea in another when each has a gift of a brain. Therein lies the agony or the ecstacy which separates us and without which civilization would not exist. And that too is off da hook ! Thanks Rich. Namyh

    Queentswarna – It’s like having children. One leads to another and another. But you’re right. It always starts with one, ideas and babies and beliefs. Thanks Queentswarna for your enjoyment. Namyh

    Wicked! What a wonderfully, wicked, written piece. so true, so very true.
    often times the fear of not succeeding plus the weight of the haters that believe you won't make it, takes that one good idea and extinguishes it.But one thing I've learned. Always consider the source. And remember that if any and everyone could do it then any and everyone would do it. And if they can do it and haven't done it, don't allow their fears to conquer you. Bless!
