'Always on the run!

Is when you care
About something
More than yourself!
Mother and child,
Husband and wife,
Earth and 'son,'
Always on the run!'

Poetry the best form of language. Why? It's figurative, not literal! If literal, not poetry to me! So, why is it the best form? It deconstructs language! We create our worlds with our thoughts and the language we use. Fellini, the Italian director, said this, 'Language is a vision of the world!' So true. There is only one universal truth, but that you must discover for yourself!

People think language 'etched in stone!' Not true! So, best to understand the following from Lewis Carroll. If you can, you'll be far along the road to understanding (existence):

'Humpty Dumpty
Sat on the wall.
Humpty Dumpty
Had a great fall!
But, all the king's men, and
All the king's horses,
Couldn't put
Humpty Dumpty
Together again!'

'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone,' it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less.'

From 'Through the Looking Glass,' by Lewis Carroll (a brilliant thinker)

Read, learn, grow, change, evolve, become!

"Earth and 'son'
Always on the run!"
