Pendulum

pendulum  

Pendulum

Back and forth, back and forth

Neither here, neither there

Oscillating life

A wisp of smoke

Night and day, night and day

The perfect cocktail

Sweet vinegar

The joy of life

The life in joy

Boundless energy

Exciting possibilities

The fear in darkness

The darkness in fear

Swallowing dreams, dashing hopes

Joy and sorrow

One here, the other not too far away

Your daily guests

Life is all about balance, they say

Don’t be too happy

Don’t be too sad

Lest you fall

And bruise your knee

You’re a pendulum

One moment sad, one moment joyful

Don’t feel too deeply

Never stay too long

Oscillate

 


I've been dealing with horrible insomnia. So this poem came to me in the middle of the night. I hope you enjoyed it!
