Philosophy

 

Democritus, he say
the world is change;
life is opinion.
In my eyes,
life is so full of pain
for many
that I’d like to re-arrange
it to make it fairer.

Miz Quickly gave us some sayings of philosophers as inspiration for our day 6 poem.

The path up and down is one and the same.__Heraclitus
Nature likes to hide itself.__Heraclitus
The world is change; life is opinion.__Democritus
All things were together. Then mind came and arranged them.__Anaxagoras
Worlds are altered rather than destroyed.__Democritus
Heraclitus said that a man’s character is his fate.__Stabaeus

 I didn’t really find them that gripping, but at least I’m still Napo-ing.

    That inspiration from Quickly moves a bit slowly – but you did a good job.
