monochrome

God and devil
Black and white
Up and down
Left and right
For or against
Joy or angst
Positive and negative
Forward motion, retroactive

All these things combined
Don't the world describe
Who forgot the color?
When did we lose sight?
Who took our variety,
And made darkness of our light?

The sun shown ultraviolet
But we forgot to see
All those colors of the rainbow
Invisible and free
Top and bottom
Charm and strange
Sentient life distinctions
Our minds are so deranged

All the world is living
All the sky is blue
Tinted red and indigo
With silent purple hues
The universe is full of light
And dancing curves of space
Time is the illusion
Which gives us all our place

Bottom-up or top-down
Where did our center go?
Is the universe just there?
Is the heart our gravity?

I never really did do well with dualities... They just don't make sence to me...

Me neither.. such a silly trapping of the human mind. Which is partly why I didn't bother to keep a solid pattern throughout the poem, too; to keep it from becoming trapped in a simple pattern itself.

You may not have struck with a strict pattern, but is was cohesive none the less, and obviously got the point across.

People understand dualities as absolutes. When I express either concern or non-understanding they get all confused about how I don''t see their "truth" to be self-evident and then try to convince me that they're right. When a person follows (or is claimed as kin by) a diety who has no real gender or species description (Loki - though it could be argued that species/gender aren't relavent with respect to gods at all), or who sees things as a continuous whole with variation, there's not going to be a rigid demarcation line down the metaphorical midline the universe.

Dualities are based on flawed logic which has it's root solely in gender perceptions, or rather the physiological manifestation, of the human body. If one looks at gene mapping, one sees that there is a wide diversity that is not commonly regarded amoungst most species, and that more often than is recognised, there are elements of both (wikipedia). Then again, we also know that with those who are transgendered, bi, and gay. Therefore, physiology doesn't really count for much so why base the "theory of everything" on it?
