Keep the poet alive !
*You might want to get your earphones for this one*
There are movies you watch and have a good laugh, there are movies that blow your minds, and then there are movies that make you think. Think about what you are doing. These movies are rare, but their concepts remain fresh for every generation. These are the kind of movies that make humanity live better.
One of such movies is the “Dead Poets Society”. No, its not entirely great, but it has these ideas that will stick to you and make you think.
I don’t want to forget these ideas because I felt a sense of change in me while thinking about them. I am pretty sure this feeling will eventually fade away if don’t do anything about it. So I decided to pull together my favourite parts of the movie and keep them here, to relive them whenever there is a need for it. starting with what the poets have started.
To Be Read At The Opening Of D.P.S Meetings
“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life. To put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived.” — Henry David Thoreau
Why do we read and write poetry?
O ME! O life!… of the questions of these recurring;
Of the endless trains of the faithless — of cities fill’d with the foolish;
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light — of the objects mean — of the struggle ever renew’d;
Of the poor results of all — of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me;
Of the empty and useless years of the rest — with the rest me intertwined;
The question, O me! so sad, recurring — What good amid these, O me, O life?
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
old time is still a flying, and this same
flower that smiles today, tomorrow will
