our yearning to
fill what it is

there, can
show to us,
a ghastly reflection
of who we are
in ways that

project our
darkest side

to run from

we smother the
quiet voice

Author's Notes/Comments: 

the psyche, the soul, the purpose, individuality, duality, life.

Trying to balance my life like a Libra

I have a duality with heaven and hell
where i dwell
Gods angels fell
and some live to tell

others die with the appetite of God
hold my intelligence type Nimrod
handling hunger with wisdom and data
i tame lower self cause reputations matter

fills in my mental rotation like a batter
working on self rather
trying to parallel with destiny
demons in my head always want to mess with me

nobody remembers #2 so be #1
lifestyle you live when you are the son of a gun
can't run your blood turns powder
ready to blast gun clap whose mind sounds louder
