Both Sides|Ideas and Action, a Poem
- en Cultura
Por Jay Bildstein
Sometimes there’s not a lot to say.
It’s the doing. It’s the doing that makes things happen.
Walking city streets wondering and worried.
Can I make it happen? But, it’s the doing. It’s the doing.
And we live in worlds in our minds.
Dancing perception’s imperfect dance.
Reality awaits. Possibility awaits.
Get out of your head now!
The mind provides much.
There’s vision and imagination.
There is intellect and insight.
Yet we must act!
Action breaks us free from the binds of mere thinking.
Action liberates our ideas.
Action is the vehicle. Our ideas are the passengers.
We need to take action!
And we walk on, pounding those city streets.
We wonder and we wilt, if we do not act.
We possess all manner of wonderful thoughts.
What stops us from acting? Fear!
I have an idea for a product, a painting, a book.
Will the public accept it?
Will people buy it?
The answer – Take Action!
The ether, littered with thoughts lacking action.
Those thoughts dying quiet and solitary deaths.
Our mind then, a tomb–not creativity’s engine.
Creativity calls for action.
Wake up and walk it.
Don’t just talk it.
Thoughts create the roadmap.
Yet action grabs the prize.
Back on those city streets we cry, “Yes!”
People wonder what we are yelling about.
We are relieved, because we are ready.
The world awaits.
Our ideas –cultivated in our minds – are born.
All becomes possible
