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.

Questions to ourselves drive us to be the better men that we ought to be. When you live life without asking the why's, you are simply living a rock's life. Some people never find the answers, and some have regrets when they open themselves, but for me, it's actually better than living a life of untruth.

Thank you i appreciate that
There's so much endless drivel being passed on as poetry on the internet that it's kind of sad that poems like this might be overlooked.
On the other hand ... it's a breath of fresh air when I do stumble on something worth reading. Simple, philosophical and absorbing. Well done man!

We act impulsively in youth, and overthink in later years... Enjoyed this, Tate - makes me realize that I'm not alone... :)

Brilliant.
Yes I think over thinking and over analysing is no good for anyone. So best to handle each day as it comes taking with it its ups and downs saying "hey ho"

Food for thought ... (Or not) 😉
