Mentality -/- Personality

2:1
Mentality

Hidden inside mysterious consciousness
Independant, incorporeal existences

Focussing mentalities upon realities
Dismisses unsubstantiated phantasies

Transcending incalculable emotional chaos
Surfaces undeniable truths

Deem highest thoughts swans
Leaving lakes heavenward

***

Enabling strong, resolute thinking
Fortifies sportive lifetime

Swerving from unscrupulous thought
Ruins noble souls

Life’s skulking evils bypass
Honest, reproachless happiness


2:2
Personality

Individuality opposing social corruption
Identity’s wonderful accomplishment

Betwyx nature & nurture
Psyche bounces eternal

Education, dignity, penance, perseverance;
Improve individuality steadily

As fruits maintain taste
Personality truly change-proof

***

Thwarting imagination’s creative phantasies
Stunts personality’s development

Constantly frustrating basic instincts
Triggers repress’d neuroses

Everyday consciousness rarely reveals
Humanity’s definitive complexion

Knowledge -/- Study

2:3
Knowledge

Comprehension without solidifying wisdom
Water macerating sand

However lowly one born
Intellectualism raises us

Avenues of intellectual enquiry
Direct human progress

Unreliable sources of gnosis;
Faith, superstition, opinion

***

Genius unleashes virtuoso brilliancies
Improving communities beautifully

Candles of knowledgeable beings
Light millions more

Yesterday’s brainiac today’s simpleton,
Society steadily complexifying


2:4
Study

Humanity inherits, improves, imparts
Batons of erudition

Ignoring schoolery’s jewel’d nuggets
Youth’s stupidest lunacy

Imperishable education illuminates intelligence
Demolishing delusional ideas

Selective, extensible, industrious study
Sharpens critical ability

***

As raindrops raise rivers
Aphorisms enrich civilisation

Beware substituting personal witness
With bookish lore

Wannabes studying with butchers
Cobblers won’t become

Literature -/- Academia

2:5
Literature

Ancyent civilisations’ indecipherable pages
Futurity’s precious manna

Absorbing inferior literature essential –
Greater works appreciated

Libraries preserve every knowledge
Humanity’s immeasurable museums

Surnames bubbling fabulous famousness
Lends literature authority

***

Writing’s divine ulterior dream-mechanism
Replicates tangible existence

Our flesh an existence
One’s oeuvre another

Publish completed manuscripts only
Embryonia attracts embarrassment


2:6
Academia

Many impressive, philosophical statements
Untestable, discombobulating gibberish

Chains sustaining infallible logic
Enrapture scholarly consensus

Because knowledge swamps studies
Choose dissertations selectively

Despite devising theoretical doctorates
Practical experience essential

***

Every fresh axiomic maxim
Explain, explore, explode!

As thesis berates antithesis
Debate shapes synthesis

Despite destroying philosophical edifices
Brickwork remains valuable

Teaching -/- Antintellect

2:7
Teaching

Scrutinizing seemingly spotless research
Unearths defectiveness somewhere

Before imparting one’s learning
Understand it thoroughly

Better challenging creative intelligence
Before forcefeeding facts

Scholarship steers studies steadfastly
Avoiding dimwittance’s invigoration

***

As the teacher teaches
They’ll learn also

Unto our oldest gorillas
Forest paths unteachable

Driving sticks into rocks
Like lecturing idiots


2:8
Antintellect

Ignoramuses believing themselves wise
Interminable, laughable buffoons

Idiotic enquiry simply exists
Like worthless wilderness

Cretins ignoring academic nectar
Flies preferring filth

Mucky feet treading linen
Klutzes marrying savancy

***

Flat-chested ladies crave bosoms
Fools, public recognition

Nincompoops bash verbal heads
Against wisdom’s rock

Lunatics favor ludicrous banter
Above intellectual debate

Planning -/- Learning

2:9
Planning

Thoroughly investigating prevenient futurities
Prevents disastrous eventualities

As night’s counsel wisest
Sleep upon deliberations

Simple initiatives easily succeed
Complexity invites complications

Listening to idle talk
Dooms vital plans

***

Aim, exertion, obstacles, profit:
Balance before activity

Resources, method, timing, location:
Consider before execution

Very clever, canny rabbits
Dig several burrows


2:10
Learning

Because learning spreads learning
Yearn learning’s increase

Thoroughly learn one’s learning
Then live it

Tho’ wealth perishes eventually
Learning, used, increases

Savants understand teachings’ meanings
Pedants memorize texts

***

Better mastering single fields
Than dilettanting ten

Instructions assimilated in youth
Engraved in stone

Automonic alumni resemble timber
Ambitious graduates trees

Wisdom -/- Ignorance

2:11
Wisdom

Traverse life’s slippery slopes
With sapient staffs

Inner wisdom’s inviolable fortress
Wards destructive forces

As canals transport goods
Wisdom channels mentality

Wherever wisdom leads us
Excellence says follow

***

Correcting misdirection & indiscretion
Gumption’s entempl’d preserve

Never fear making mistakes
Only repeating them

Remembrances of past events
Guidebooks for futurity


2:12
Ignorance

Proclaim professorship Human Being
Bombastic buffoonary, Beast

Louts feigning proper knowledge
Doubted when accurate

Bestowing brilliance upon yourself
Announces personal ignorance

Uneducated insight occasionally excellent
But seldom respected

***

Spoons cannot taste porridge
Nor cretins, wisdom

Dirty containers rancify food
Idiotic acquaintances, life

One contemplative day outweighs
Multiple ignorant lifetimes

Anxiety -/- Sleep

2:13
Anxiety

Conversations of therapeutic mindfulness
Contain disquieting confusion

Pharmacies advertise coercive propaganda
Purchases relieve anxieties

Because stress manifests botherations
Transcend swampish worrying

Drugs perhaps suppress depression
But never dissolve

***

Darkness consumes sullen souls
Even under sunlight

Cravings, hatreds, indolence, doubts
Nursemaids of uncertainty

Social medias promoting perfections
Spread personal unworthiness


2:14
Sleep

Sleep’s silent, comfortable warmth
Night’s antiwearying sanctuary

Slumber’s unique, unfallable abilities:
Isolation, rejuvenation, dreams

Repose’s hallucinative reverie implants
Vivid, metempsychosis portraiture

Memories, desires, neurosi, prophecy:
Slumberlans’s mysterious manna

***

Like overheating enginery malfunctioning
Sleepless mentalities collapse

Restlessly insomniacal thro’ night
Daytime’s sonambulent zombies

Sleep’s deprivation induces fumbling
Overslumber encourages slothdom
