A circle

What is a circle?
life is a circle
two halves of five-fifth
don't fight it

A person is both
the beauty is in the extremes
which is one of contradiction
a hypocracy at the start

It is us who create sickness
division in politics gender and beliefs
It all comes from a circle
The circle of life

Our nature is both negative and positive
and anything in between
We are the yin and yang
It is a circle
The extremes and differences are in us
And it makes us one

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
