But On The Other Hand

Updated on February 19, 2012

On the one hand
I am complete
But on the other
I know I'm not

A forest is unaware of its beauty
Yet it never stops growing

On the one hand
I am a mentor
But on the other
I'm never really sure

A teacher may never see the fruit
Yet he continues to plant

On the one hand
I want love
But on the other
I don't

The right one is almost not even there
But you are never alone

On the one hand
I am a good father
But on the other
I am not

They know that I love them
But I have my own life

      I enjoyed reading this. I loved the opposition followed by metaphor/explanation. I was left wanting that for the last stanza too though. Good piece. Up and interesting.

      Oops... I left the last stanza off! I copied it from Word and left it off. Duh....Thank you for pointing that out... I'll fix it.
