The twinkling eyes with dreams filled high,
The world’s to be conquered no time to sigh.
Plunge deep, getting rid of the past,
The boundless ocean of the knowledge vast!

Focus thy mind, satisfy senses bright,
Sailing afloat, drifting, lacking insight,
No time to ponder, the incessant haste,
Reflecting, contemplating, meditating as if a waste!

The swift thoughtless pace as a whirlwind devastating,
The reckless muddled efforts as the labyrinth meandering,
Freedom of speech misused, thoughtless words enounced,
Misleading the beings, self-love vices no more renounced!

Deceived, deluded the humans fooled,
Futile inutile information from hither thither pooled,
Flooding, surging, spewing out,
Disdaining, belittling humans flout!

The beauty of life bestowed upon,
By the Divine the humans showered upon,
Uplift, elevate, raise thy self,
Neither entrap nor entangle life entwined!

Let not be misinformed in vain obsession,
Lose not the knowledge in the heaps of information,
Let not the soul suffer irretrievable damage,
Lose not thy wisdom in the pursuit of knowledge!

Comments on this Poem

Comment T.S. Eliot's scintillating lines that have always inspired and shall continue to inspire as quoted as follows:

"Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge,
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information,
The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries,
Bring us farther from God and nearer to dust."

The foresightedness and the perception of Eliot astound us ...undoubtedly one of the best poets of all times!!!

My poem has been inspired by the most beautiful lines from the play 'ROCK'.
