From Homer’s epical poetry that catapults strong-minded men into dilemma of thoughts – To Shakespeare’s thought-provoking sonnets that storms spectators as prisoners of reason – To Michelangelo’s thorny piercing poems that arouse hearts into romantic cacophony – To T.S. Elliot’s poetical hymns that glorifies the Higher Power upstairs stupendously, poetry is food for thought. To that end, The Tears of a Tortoised Poet is a fish not in pond but in strings of oceans married together.

But as Einstein bluntly put it, “If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live the rest of its life believing that it is stupid.” To that degree, let the one who is actuated by the desire to score points, cast the die. As of this manuscript, lend me not only your ears, but also the hearts to quarantine your minds into tears of thoughts of hope for a hopeless person.
