Torn Between Polarities

Torn Between Polarities

A Poem by Christopher Michael Smith

...torn between polarities,
from the universal down to the cellular world,  
the spark & the dark within, 
emotional terror down to nature's basic rule of law, 
the constant tugging of contrasting densities, 
each possessing its very own gravitational pull, 
invisible chaos hidden octaves aloft, 
light spectrum of inconceivable thought, 
weak sight, 
divided & lost, 
absent from the majestic performance, 
right here, 
before us all,  
visual stimulus not receptive to the hidden messages written in dreams & thought, 
collectively present in the flesh, 
souls enclosed within the darkness of these hard headed skulls we possess, 
experience limited to the lessons learned on these egotistical paths we all walk, 
positively emitting negative returns, 
spiritually revolving through birth and death's doors, 

torn between polarities, 
between energies we cannot even see, 
between choices to be made, 
between what to believe, 

torn between polarities, 
between opposing energies, 
collectively collected little pieces of the puzzle, 
yet our egos will not let our neighbors see the piece of which we hold, 
sharing nothing of the sort with the likes of them, 
belongs to a selfish someone that everyone here calls Me, 
so very little & so very much we think we know & believe, 
the pieces of the puzzle will never fit here with a divided we, 
here in this world torn between polarities..........
