poems

The sun may banish the world of night
but not even the truth is always right
Not everything can be black and white
not even your world can exist without a fight.

You know of pleasure because of pain
If not then everything would stay the same
You can’t have loss without a gain
You must learn the rules before you play the game

Up counters down and hot betrays cold
Until forever is found this story will be told
Even god and the devil will together grow old
As the strong seek the weak and the shy find the bold

(I deleted this stanza, but put it here for future ideas:
And in the middle where the rest are bound
That place between enchanted sky and ground
Even the heartbeat of peace is a forgotten sound
Yet that is where the truth can be found.)

——————–

One step more, one step I take
One step for one heart to break
One step back one more despite
The step I took to miss the fight

One path chosen one path more
One path for the mistaken lore
One path past far from the light
Another path I thought was right

One tear falls, one tear, no more
One tear for all the hurt I bore
One tear from a shattered might
The last tear before the endless night
