The Seesaw of Belief

The Seesaw of Belief

A Poem by stargirl23

up, down, up, down

up and down they go

on the seesaw of ideals,

the seesaw of belief

up, down, up, down

a tail hangs by one’s feet

while the other has a trunk

that clings tight to its side

up, down, up, down

only one can be on top

up, down, up, down

a sandbox lays before them

it’s so close, they could move,

but it’s so far, it is

up, down, up, down …

Life has its highs and lows. In fact life is all about this see saw of events.
Very well written.

Thank you!
~ i really like the way you've captured constant oscillation... that all of us sometimes indulge in... and yet... in your uniquely poetic voice... you etch social commentary that stings... ~ your piece reminds of how volatile society can be when it is unstable and chaotic... and so can individuals... ~ excellent work...
