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.

Nice piece and as age overtakes us we seem to overthink life and sometimes that causes us to miss many great moments.

thank you i enjoyed writing it I woke late and had it on my mind
The choices we make point back to us ... as the friend and guide of life ... in its journey for joy and harmony. Its an old saying which says ... ' when the student is ready the teacher will come.' Till then we prepare ourselves for the day we will be ready. A cool poem that explores the paths of our choices.

my pleasure,not writing much either
Nicely done. Good flow and an interesting topic that I'm sure many writers experience throughout their lives. I know I find myself often wrestling with my mind, both searching for answers and forsaking that which I find. Life is interesting to say the least. I enjoyed your poem, good job

I think you are right i am going to face this one with my head up
I think it is the duality of nature, that would be my answer. We all go through the same phases and it is surprising that one time we are so happy then in like an instant something happens that overides the joy and we forget that joy that moment and focus on that sad feeling. I wish our minds would be able to sieve sad stuff and let the joyful stuff pass through so we enjoy the happy moments longer...
