Wedged between light and dark;
Vised between reason and emotion;
The balance is unattainable.
Emotion, the thief of common sense,
Creates a blinding illusion,
Obscuring the clarity of logical insight.
Reason, fiery and emphatic,
Pierces through the darkness,
Even if only, a streak of gold light,
Brilliant and vivid,
Seen with effort but yet visible.
Is a double-sided form,
A soft and caring lamb on one side,
And a fierce and passionate lion on the other.
Though sometimes a ice-encrusted rock,
Still attains one shape;
One identity, one perception.
Labored to emotional exhaustion,
Must strive to see the sunset of reason
On reality's dark horizon.
