Poem 51.  Homo Duplex: Two Poems About Duality

Poem 51. Homo Duplex: Two Poems About Duality

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

Inspired by Pax's review comment on my piece I SHOWED MY FACE and his poem DUALITY.

"


The War

 

Yin- yang
bad- good
dark- light
sad- happy

Black-white.

Our nature

Has this opposition

One against the other

Soul VS Body

Egoist VS Reasonable.

We are contradictory beings

We need our spirituality

To bind them

Or if we can’t

At least make them coexist     

Peacefully

To avoid war within

Ourselves.

 



 




Duality

 

        

Oh, why I feel you want to prove I’m wrong

When you insist your thoughts upon me, dear?

How could I stand beside you if I don’t

Be certain of your creed, I want it clear.

 

Oh yes, each one of us has these both sides

Duality’s a nature of all men

You always thought that one’s both white and black

Be good and bad that everybody can.

 

You said it once that we’re in a facade

It only shows what is good to be seen

The mask we wear is great in hiding us

What we’ve been through, it’s when we do pretend.

 

And yet I thought I could have made you smile

When I showed you the best face that I have

Behind the words, across the thousand miles

I sent a heart, a true friend that I can.

 

But now I know, I’ve come to understand

Like me, you have duality’s great war.

 





Note: I don't intend to offend anybody here. Just a product of research, belief, and rhyme scheme. LOL. Love you, friends.

Duality/opposites exist for us to have a better appreciation of life. We appreciate happiness because we had felt pain and sadness; we want light because we've felt darkness, etc.. we humans possess varied forms of contradictions within us. shall we allow one contradiction prevail over the other or shall we allow it to temper and/or balance each other? how we handle these contradictions shall define our values.

The second write gave me the impression that the voice want things to be in black and white before making any commitment. but in the end she realized that things don't work that way. this is just my take on it, my friend. i got confused on the subject matter =)

welcome dhaye.
Allow me to dwell more on the first poem. I always believe that there is angel as well as devil in all of us or whatever others call them, yin and yang, bad and good, dark and light, ID and EGO, VICIOUS EXTREME OF EXCESS and DEFICIENCY and so on and there is a battlefield within us, a battlefield where they fight, where the other side struggles to outwin the other one. I would like to say, too, that they are impossible to unite, but the important is what side do we allow to win this battle within us that when we behave we act without appealing to maxims.

It is obviously good that Pax, our friend, brought you beautiful muse! Keep penning.
