Ignorant Chaos

“After all, if you do not resist the apparently inevitable, you will never know how inevitable the inevitable was.”
― Terry Eagleton, Why Marx Was Right

Courage of lost ruins
Encourage these compulsive deeds
Drunk, blind and oh too – gleeful!
This rhythm emulates the wilderness –
Where courage is wild and,
Existence too bliss to ignore.
Drowning in forbidden realizations,
Swaying and falling; they set the stage –
For the most tragic drama of all time;
Where blissful apathy births ignorant chaos.

“Empathy nurtures wisdom. Apathy cultivates ignorance.”
― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Courage of lost ruins
One last step lost in the rain
Dreaming of the lake

Please feel free to join in! Submissions are open until tomorrow, January 23, 10:00 AM (GMT+3).

For this week’s very intriguing W3 prompt, the computer generated line, “Courage of lost ruins” kind of inspired me to write about how we tend to be apathetic more often than not. So much has been happening around the world and so little seem to be done in order to battle that and I feel like this manner of ignorance is not bliss but leads to chaos that’s equally ignorant in the long run (this probably won’t make sense to me tomorrow 😂). As always, this poem is open to interpretation – feel free to share your take on it!

Thoughtfully yours,

  1. Hey Anjola!
    I’m sorry to say I’m not at the moment. It used to be a weekly feature a year or so ago, but I’ve shut it down since then due to time constraints. Thanks so much for thinking of this blog – much appreciated!❣️

  3. Oh, I’m so sorry I didn’t see that! Don’t worry though – your response isn’t visible to anyone but me.
    It’s such a lovely poem! Thank you so much for taking the time to share it!
    I’m sorry once again, I haven’t been able to spend time on my blog at all lately.


  4. Wow Deepthy, this is an amazing poem “Ignorance Chaos” and if I can use interpretation, it means avoiding chaos is like being blind to the fact that chaos is unavoidable, just like that quote by Larry/Jerry Eagleton with the ending “never know how inevitable the inevitable was” 🔥🔥🙌🙌

    I like your blog also, I just gave it a follow✔

    I think that’s quite an interesting take – attributing ignorance to blindness.
