A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Is the duality of nature the cornerstone of our own conscience?

"

Hippie Chic

Granddaughter Payton and I pondering the truths of the universe.



Often I ponder the question

can one think too much for ones good

Until it becomes an obsession

on wondering if a man should



Why do I query my own mind

as sadly I prove myself right

The two halves becoming entwined

in tauntings that cause them to fight



Is this my own duality

with the conscience I hold so dear

Or do I taste mortality

with it's old friend mighty fear



I find myself set in my ways

unlike those nights back in my youth

When I was such a fire ablaze

who never questioned life or truth

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
The heights and depths of a poets life are filled with joys beyond compare and depths of despair. However I wouldn't trade that for a life of dull monotony.
One thing for sure we know Love. We know pain. They are two sides of the same coin. However they are the way we balance life leaping from one trial into another. We love with all our being and when disappointed we cry from the depths of the Heart.

Often I find my own mind is at odds with itself and I wonder if this is the duality of nature or the cornerstone of our own conscience?
I look at my granddaughter and all I see is absolutes.

I have always loved your poetry because they are written well and beautifully convey emotion. This one reminds me of all the times I tend to overthink things and I miss out on so much. It makes me sad, but happy that you awakened something inside of me that might have been dormant for too long.

I'm going to be honest here, and hopefully you won't take offense. Stick with me, I'll come back around in the end of this review! Sometimes, when I get into your poety, I'm a bit lost, or feel as if the verses could have so much more depth to them, if your choice of words were different. That, is the editor in me. But then... you always manage to reel me back in with such fantastic final verses, that I have to go back, and re-read the entire piece. So, congrats on that. As a songwriter, and performer, I always tell the people I'm making music with, that it's absolutely fine to screw up here and there throughout the song... just make the last 30 seconds count, flawless, and emotionally outstanding, and no one in the audience will have any idea you didn't nail it during the tune. I compare this to your work my friend... even when every verse is good in your work, the last 30 seconds of your poems are always magnificent.

Thank you I am always looking back on the road i traversed >never happy over it
It is so powerful how you take these moments of reflection and find this brilliant balance in the you now, and this vision of you from your youth. There is something to be said for fire, and something to be said for loving wisdom and life. I know you love your dear ones so much, and that changes everything.

Questions to ourselves drive us to be the better men that we ought to be. When you live life without asking the why's, you are simply living a rock's life. Some people never find the answers, and some have regrets when they open themselves, but for me, it's actually better than living a life of untruth.

Thank you i appreciate that
There's so much endless drivel being passed on as poetry on the internet that it's kind of sad that poems like this might be overlooked.
On the other hand ... it's a breath of fresh air when I do stumble on something worth reading. Simple, philosophical and absorbing. Well done man!
