A Philosophy Of Beauty

These evil days require you to grit your teeth in misery to survive,
But you have to realize life is more
Than staying alive:
You have to create magical kindness in the heart,
Follow the skyscraper skyline
While in ecstasy pursuing art;
But still, I grow weary of cops kicking the homeless
Down heartless streets,
I’ll have to go out west and live in the sand,
Dance at dusk upon the beach,
Later, on midnight dunes I’ll sleep.
Living out your Divinity involves a philosophy of beauty
And refusing to hurt anyone.

I honestly have the same philosophy of life if this is yours. Very well written.
Uriah, I love the way you have expressed those sentiments I share wholeheartedly. It's not enough to 'put up with'. You need to follow your dream.... and it is a beautiful dream you show us, Uriah. Bless you. Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
'Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother, you're stayin' alive, stayin' alive. Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin', and we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.' The Bee Gees Yes staying alive is one thing but you remind us of that we need not just to be but to see too 'Living out your Divinity involves a philosophy of beauty And refusing to hurt anyone.' A divine poem from you -Pia
How neatly this poem perpetuates that old wondrous spirit of we-are-stardust of yonder woodstock times! Love to have your name recommended on my read-also list!
Yes, one grows weary, the instinct to flee grows strong. This poem beautifully expresses the tension between the need for an ideal reality - and reality. -Will
