Deep Thinking Lingers

Written by: Terrell Martin

It’s good to know there’s still a few 
Deep thinkers, roundabout; 
Those who are unafraid to speak their minds
Of certainty or doubt.  
To disagree with you and me 
About religion, politics and war;
It’s good to know there’s still a few 
Deep thinkers at the door.  
Where disagreement and discussion 
Are two poles that intertwine
And listening before talking
Is in tune with God’s own mind.
Though we may not always be 
Right, wrong or other-(wise);
As the distance between two points
Cannot always be perceived with just two eyes.   
The mileage is in the journey
And we’re all visitors around here;
It’s good to know there’s still a few 
Deep thinkers with hopes and fears.
Standing on the precipice between 
The past and now, today;
While time is fleeting with the wind 
Deep thinking lingers in the clay.
Ye poets are deep thinkers 
Hats off to you and I;
And I pray you disagree with me
Until birds no longer fly.
