"Alive" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on August 10, 2014

"Alive"

To create or not to create?

To even exist, such an egomaniacal thought

To play god

To make something from nothing

To take the time to sculpt the mush into a palace

To stand inside of it

To breathe it in

To taste the fruit

To repeat the process

To give birth

To be born

To love

To die

To be

Alive

      That's extremely interesting, I believe that to be an interesting concept, seems true to me.

      I understand, Bro.

      No bad thing, creativity. I read recently that if something is a Paradox, then it means that it is true. I found it interesting. What do you think? Love, Bro.

      Thank you for the visit and kind words Manatita.... my goal is to create something from nothing, which is somewhat unnatural, but im human and my follycomes from my longing to create and not just be. I try to marry the East with the West but most times they are contradictory.

      Yes Brother Eric,

      Beautiful and full of wisdom. Have a read of this one:

      "That which does not exist, can never come into existence; that which exists, can never cease to be." - Sri Krishna.

      Your poem reminded me of this, that's all. No meaning here. Great Hub!

      Thank you all, deprived myself of writing to see it's effects on myself; it was tough. Glad to be at it again.

      It created very vivid pictures for me and the wording was a joy to read.
