we coexist

particles of darkness along a spine

deep-seated, held for generations in flesh that was

held tight

we coexist with small dark particles of darkness

and light

they easily penetrate our bodies

small beings of light and dark easily visit and disperse

the erasure of darkness is not the point.

the earth is exactly halfway between the heavens and the hells

thus we always work with a dynamic balance

and there is no wisdom in trying to prevent your toes

from treading the soil

there is no wisdom in rejecting communication

with the side of pain, anger and loss.

mediation can be practiced

and must be

in fact, this is our lifeblood.

the earth is exactly halfway between the heavens and the hells

so the company of your demons is only natural to me

so long as the two wings needed to fly

are connected.

the dangerous walk starts with a mind that is not only tired, but fearful and gripping on to what is good and evil. the dangerous walk starts with the belief that the soul can be marred.

the fear to touch is well-founded when inner contact and tolerance for presence has not been achieved.

certainly we can be splintered, and we can be very impure.

yet, we coexist, and we can simultaneously exist in great darkness and great light.

perhaps i have finally noticed that these are not opposites, nor are they necessarily antagonistic. they overlap in a simultaneous polyphony, just like other qualities — of atmosphere, colour, aroma, sound and feeling can.

my only necessary concern is sculpting the shape in which i wish to exist in this simultaneous field.
