There are two sides to a coin
Heads and tails
There are two forces of nature
Evil and good
There are two truths in a story
Yours and mine
There are two paths you can go by
Up or down
There are two points of a destination
Beginning or end
There are two parts of a day
Light and dark
There are two heavenly bodies
Sun and moon
There are two types of acquaintances
Friend and foe
There are two basic emotions
Love and hate
There are two states of being
Alive and dead

But only one reality


(not really a poem i think, just my personal hell)

EXCELLENT WOW, a great deal of thought went into this one and it reads so smoothly. I think this is perhaps one of my favorite of yours

No way Ruth! That just goes to show how you might think lowly of one thing, and someone else sees something different in it. I honestly sort of hated this one myself. But it shows me so personally, I kept it.
Thanks for making me look at it in different light.

your hell...our poetic pleasure...
this is way cool jer, and yes it does speak of your mind and the way it works..DEEPLY  


There are two heavenly bodies
Sun and moon
There are two types of acquaintances
Friend and foe
There are two basic emotions
Love and hate
There are two states of being
Alive and dead

But only one reality
--------------------------

stalking you in many ways...
your jm


 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

Reality, however, can be a multifaceted state of actuality.  

Wonderful poem.

Hi JML,

This is powerful, and you would think that with only two choices in life that could be made, life would be eazy.

Thank you all for reading. I am glad to provoke deep thinking.

Reality is the only word in the English language that should always be used in quotes.
