The Art of Life

“The Art of Life”
by:  Eric L. Boddie

Let me tell you something I hope you will understand
Outside of God, family and women, words are the greatest passion for this man
For they are derived from thoughts, and thoughts can never be forsaken
Only The Good Ones Are From God, all others fall under satan
Lowercased for there is no Love, Respect, not even hate for him in my prism
All I have for him is nothingness, the truest sense of nihilism
So I encourage each and every individual to become a free thinker
Let it be as natural as before breaking for a turn, you simply click the blinker
Who among us can tell me what year it is?....But how do you know?
It is impossible to ever be certain if you were not there for the start of the show
Will we ever realize that we ALL have Faith, be it Good or bad
Mama introduced me To Christ, The Best Replacement For ANY missing dad
So what do you Believe?  Just who do you serve?
Is your path one of material desire, or do you have the nerve?
To not be the one in the mirror, but only the one in the heart
It could be chaos, serenity or both, the only three forms of Living Art
And whether if the altitude of the magnitude is prude, rude or crude
To many do not think for self, and I REFUSE to be that dude

"So I encourage each and every individual to become a free thinker" - this is very important!! This poem should be widely read! Whatever you do, whatever you follow, whatever you preach; take sometime to think why you're doing it. Is it because you're just following faith or following that reflection in the mirror. Great great write. Something I always tell people but could never write in poetry!!!

Well said; the power of the mind and the spoken word (written, whatever) is the declaration of a pure heart when true to the Christ of our nature. Great writing my friend!
