Logic potion

Sometimes I wish

That when I’m set Inna trance of emotion

I can sip on a cup of  logic potion

Where I can submerge into  facts

And stop dreaming of fluffy cats

And think for myself without confusion

 

This logic potion

Isn’t an ordinary notion

I won’t get drunk, it’s quite the opposite really

It’s everything nice but without the touchy feely

I’ll nibble on my chocolate

With my eyes awake and open

Reclining on my chair

Sipping on my logic potion,

which btw I wouldn’t ever share!

It helps me see quite clearly

But the price is paid quite dearly

As a part of me is numbed away

And i lose those thoughts I thought

so freely

Thoughts that kept me awake at night

Sometimes putting me to sleep in bliss

That I can have one last kiss of hope

Before I begin the next day

Ready to live the next day

With this potion, everything becomes mechanical

And all actions seem equivocal

It’s math and deduction

And of course also intuition

But I realized, that the feelings I have teach me more than my own objections

They teach me about me

Faster than any division

It takes time to set approximations

But with my heart, I quickly see with my reactions

So no,

Change of mind! I was just kidding

I’ll have a sip of bubble tea instead!

    You know this reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend recently. She wishes that life and religion had less of the gray and more concrete answers. At times it’s so hard to know what to do, and I guess she’s more of a logical person than myself. I sort of like the fact that we won’t ever know everything. I’m definitely a dreamer, I like unpredictability and I like not knowing everything. That way, there’s always something left to learn 🙂

      Thanks for your response! It’s true, there are times we all wish we had a more.. “visible” idea of what’s going on. But sometimes, we get to know more by not knowing certain things. That’s what inspired me to write this poem like.. right after fajr salah loll
      If in a situation we don’t learn about the outside, there is definitely a chance that we learn about the inside, which is ourselves! So in a sense, it’s a win win for us no matter the circumstance, but of course depending on how we look at it
