A Poem by LonlyKitty
"

Are you gonna choose the darkness and do evil? Or are you gonna close your mind and do what they tell you to do? I choose to walk on the border

"

I like the sound of the rain

slowly slipping to the drain.

Falling quietly, leaving marks,

Disappearing in the sight of dusk


I like the sound of the waves,

crushing hard, Poseidon's slaves.

But as the dark goes to sleep

the night beasts hide in the deep.


I like the sound of fallen leafs,

the crunchy sound they release.

But in the night they're all forgotten,

left behind, ignored, rotten.


I like the smell of the snow,

keeping warmth, yet releasing cold.

But as the sun starts to shine,

it has to pay the worst fine.


So let me ask you something now -

Do you wish the dark to allow,

the night beasts and rotten leafs

to control your life, never finding peace?


Or do you wish to be a slave,

get crushed, melt away?

No one to be able to see your pain,

Not allowed to use your brain?


I enjoy the lovely sun.

I enjoy the nightly sky.

I'll enjoy and have some fun

until I need to say the final goodbye.

Very thought provoking. When I think I grasp your meaning, I pause and read again. And still get stumped. It's a beautiful write, btw. My answer, as with everything in my life is balance, everthing in moderation, except for bs, that I can take in very small doses. lol

This is from a song. I do not own it.

A human ain't a human if he don't make mistakes
And the name of this song is swan lake

End quote

Imperfection is wrong
Perfection is wrong
The land of happiness is betwixt.

And so the earth is.
We wish for the happiness, and so many heavens are portrayed as perfect.
But what is a world with no mountains to climb?

Perfection is boring, so hell was made. But hell was undesirable. So we circle back to earth, and begin anew. And so people strive for the better, never knowing the flaws make the man, not the man making flaws. And so we go from point A to point B.

And then B to A

Yet some people rebel. They leave conformity. They live in today, not caring what happens. And their heaven?

The heaven of the gods. Earth.

We have been blessed, but we strive for perfection.
Perfection is bored, so it strives for torment.

Who is the luckiest in the cycle? No one. The grass is always greener.

And so we stay. We wait. We wait for heaven. Never knowing, or caring, that there is no such thing.
