Two Sides of a Coin

Raise your coin into the light,

on one side shadow,

one side bright,

 

Here we have, held in our hand,

a disc reflecting,

the duality of Man,

 

Look down deep,

inside yourself,

See it there?

In It’s repose?

 

Everything that you hold good,

shining out for all to know,

what lies in shadow,

out of the light,

are those things in you,

you’d rather hide,

 

We are taught,

these things are wrong,

that inside us,

they don’t belong,

 

Herein there’s,

a fallacy,

a cause of suffering,

that need not be,

 

Those dark traits,

which we’d deny,

serve us well,

through all our lives,

 

Were they not there,

within our sight,

we’d remain foreverĀ blind,

to love and light.
