I am heading to Florida Orchestra this Saturday afternoon
I will listen to Dovarks “New world Symphony” composed while experiencing the American way of life by Bohemian Artist in 19th century
The 3rd movement of the dovarks symphony defines America better than American constitution itself with transoceanic appeal
A piece art by a Bohemian Artist combined both old world and new world gives pure aesthetic pleasure closer to Beethoven’s symphony no.9
Dovarks Slavonic dances symphony is also much similar to “New world symphony”
What an artist seeks in an artist is nothing but an inspiration
Tonight I am looking for a lost bumble bee mumbling and rapping somewhere
Where is that girl who makes me smile
She thinks the way I think
Who was that girl rhyming like a hipster acting like a Gypsy
Smoking hookah and writing poetry in her notebook
We walked and talked for hours and hours until the roosters started crowing
All my nihilism disappears for a minute
My heart wonders across oceans under the blazing sun
What if she appears somehow in front of me out of no where?
I will say nothing but breath and just breath
I may try to kiss her again rebelling against her resentment
Poetry is the essence of the soul
Poetry awakens the senses
Poetry expresses repressed thoughts and feelings
Poetry is divine
Poetry care not of the rules it speakes freely
Poetry is the intelligence that rises with the sun in morning
A warm yellow bright light bursting life on earth
Under the bursting sun in Florida
Poetry remains the beat of eccentric hearts
From one bar to another souls flee
From one end to another walks ponytail
In search of what?
He ain’t going to stop
Put another drink on my tap for godsake
Why this white girl talks so much?
Why do bars exist?
Looking for enlightenment at the wrong place
Seeking peace of mind in another’s mind?
Listening to gibberish to pass time
Hitting on girls for sex
Bring me some Greek ale and say goodbye to this dreamy night
There is a longing in my heart for something skunk in past
I see some vague faces in my hallucinations
Who were those homeless, hipsters and hobos on streets?
Talk no more of homo Sapiens but homo Sacer’s or Bare life “Unworthy to live”
Listen to the songs of drunken white boy Billy on 22nd street
Smoke some sacred marijuana handed down by a negro near a strange house’s porch
Where is that pony tail? Find him or curse him out he ain’t gonna change
Somewhere near the store, I wrote these lines and make a poem in quest of a longing to belong
Where do the poets belong?
If not the human race but to art alone
To “Art” alone which possesses the inalienable rights of man
Life is will to power wrote Nietzsche
What is this will that seeks power?
The assertion of the denial of will argued Schopenhauer is against individual will
This will is saying “Yes” to life
This life in this world in short, is human all too human
What is this will if not the ability to be what one really is in actuality
Nothing but Aristotle argues an animal with political needs further coined by Foucault as an animal with biopolitical needs
Cioran wrote the book titled as “The Trouble with being born”
What is this birth?
If not source of all the suffering of mankind
A child gains consciousness at very early age
He reasons “ I have a name and I exist not with my own consent but I just exist just as the sun and the moon exist”
What is the purpose of existence if not death?
To live is to suffer and to die is absolute freedom argues Cioran
There is no worst day in ones life than his or her own birthday
What is Nature? Or the state of Nature?
The most ancient and the most naked and truthful condition of man’s struggle for life
Hobbes argued that “By nature all men are born equal”
It is further stated by Hobbes that from this equality among men arises difference of opinions
Each man claims to be the most wisest, wittiest henceforth waging war against his fellow men
How innocently this equality shared by nature alone makes us enemies concluded Hobbes
War and injustice come forth to destroy and develop social contract theories into our modern era
Nihilism again rules everywhere
Where to go?
Whole to blame?
Ran up to the high mountains thus spake Zarathustra
Gogol has written the masterpiece short story almost two centuries ago titled as “Overcoat” which remains relevant and truthful to this day in our modern society
Akakay akokovich the protagonist in the story is commonly found on streets everywhere
we cannot help but judge a man by his outlook, physical appearance, dress codes, and sense of clothing.
Even though we cannot know or are unable to know what is going in any other persons life
but we are so often obliged to pass a judgement which “Malcolm Gladwell” calls Snap judgments in his book tipping points.
We just love to rob other individuals of their simple and pure pleasures?
Gogol depicts the most uncanny psychological analysis of a working class individual
Socrates comes to my mind precisely and Thoreau
both the Greek and the American philosopher emphsizes on inward appearnce than the outward
let other people be and never call on someone a pimp no matter how weird they dress up
(The will and the idea) Schopenhauer argues in his fourth book “The assertion and denial of the will”
Schopenhauer presents the concept and form of “Principium Individuationis” the idea that humans are constantly at war with each other the same idea which Hobbes wrote known as “bellum omnium contra omnes” admirably described in the first chapter of De Cive.
“The war of all against all” is a true depiction of today’s world after the emergence of pandemic and violent riots and protests in the capitol and against racial segregation in the U.S specially the so called slogans “Black lives matter” and now days “Asian lives matter” after the killing of some Asian Americans at the hands of a white privileged American.
If we take a look at history of western Colonizers and the poem by Rudyard Kipling “White Man’s burden” is that poetical monster not war against all other races?
Once a mob of men or the masses are set free from all law and order it all ends in chaos, violence and self-centered desires in the form of hate speech, bloodshed, robbery and all other vices etc.
To trace the source of egoism as the starting point of all conflicts further argued Schopenhauer.
Each individual has his own will to to live, desires and wants to satisfy for which the individual can or will violate the rights of his fellow men for his own selfish interests as every individual has his own world as an idea, the perception of a perceiver according to Schopenhauer.
Growing up in a backward Islamic country I was told as a kid that on the day of judgement each man and women will only preserve his or her own self, the perpetual state of war will never end and the mothers will forget their sons and daughters and each man and women will exist for their own essential being. God will then discipline and punish and deliver his final verdict to every being for their deeds.
