Yin Yang

A Poem by Redboy

Life is a lie

every word

every friend

every smell

every touch

every sound, taste, sight...
a fading memory, an illusion from the start

every means to understand or disprove this...DELUSION

life is pain, life is death

every tight inhale a subtle, yet painful grasp for life

a deep, desperate breath in thinned air

every exhale a false promise

every tic of time, meaningless

life is solitude, a glorified coffin

chained to the self


life is a bomb threat disguised as a gift

a shady, binding contract with the fine print written in invisible ink

a warm cozy fire place...that burns the house down to the ground

a joke, that robs you of the laugh

ignorance... plain and simple


i know everything i need to know

this is clear now

why did i come here?

life is...unbearable
life.. is fantasy

every smell

every touch

every sound, taste, sight, a vivid frame on the ever changing screen of vibration

every attempt to fully understanding this through words and concepts...ATTACHMENT

life is birth, life is bliss

space, light, love...
every exhale a gentle, but exhilarating RIDE on the hum of existence
every inhale charged with suspense

a slow drift on the eternal stream of beautiful now

life is a union, a harmony of the unique

life is freedom to explore yourself, your path

life is an adventure disguised as a challenge

a growing space, with surprise around all corners

 a violent lightning storm, that feeds your crops

life is dust in the wind, that is the breath of god

The  manipulation of a small universe in the palm of your hands, that you perceive as one whole

and the manipulation of your universe in the palm of gods hand as one whole, that you perceive as many

it is...a masterpiece

...that brings tears

the one contains the many the many contains the one

the wrong answers are right, the right answers are wrong

contemplation in it's purest form


but fundamentally i am just...i

i can't conceive of the mystery of this life

it is indescribable

i never want to leave this space

"life" is... just a word

beautiful man, truely. I love this type of writing, simple because it is so honest and heartfelt. This is why I write poetry, to push the envelop, and I know (well atleast for me) that everytime i try to do that people will not follow to that style with me, but this man is breathtaking. "life is a bomb threat diguised as a gift". Incredible.

Seems your very words explain how life is more than just a word, but many experiences, many emotions, many things. Everything can be explained even if for now we cannot explain them. Seems like everything is matter in motion, a unity and struggle of opposites that can be changed and transformed through conscious actions. Enjoyed reading your trip through ying and yang .....

Dear Moody
But the illusion is in your inner life (very ZEN) which is an amazing place. There is a real world out there. It may be an illusion but not at our level of consciousness. Get out and about and search for the poetry there! I too would like to be your friend (or Aunty) but for some reason, at the moment my computer (It is a very contrary one!) won't let me do it. Keep writing, young thing!
