Questions

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.

You are most welcome.. I believe we have not done so :) Greetings to you!
we get older and wiser and we question....that other half (the doubt) shows up later in life with all the experience we gain...and then each decision seems so much harder to make.

Age seems to be memory loss. My sister has diaries with happy events written down. Pick up a diary and she can sink into a blessed memory of the past. HUM...wish I had thought of this. Valentine

Oh Tater I fear you worry too much. I wonder what it must be like to always be thinking. You need to relax and have a drink. There are great advantages to being able to lay back and watch the world go by without. It is always so nice to read your thoughts. This is no exception. I wish you could know the peace of mind that comes from not worrying about all the things that we cant help. Sadly I fear you are right though We cannot close our minds to the things around us.
Love Ya
