Analysis Paralysis

think

You’re very intelligent,
…very smart!

You can drag a topic in a discussion
To the core of its foundations.
Historical…
Philosophical…
Sociological…
Psychological…
Legal.
And yeah…
Including economics.
The fine prints  you don’t miss.

You’re very intelligent,
…very smart!

You make arguments
Go round and round.
You run round in circles!

You philosophize till death.
You put the simplest of matters under scrutiny
… from sunrise to sunset
… from dusk till dawn!
You use all isms as your lens.

But what?

You find no answers…
You offer no compromise…
Stalemate!
You make no decisions.
Your high IQ
has been paralyzing you!

You’re very intelligent,
…very smart!
Yet you fail to realize
That all it takes is COMMON SENSE
To understand
The mysteries of life and the universe.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
