The Eternal Twins: Love And Hate


It consumes without regard
It shape without regard
It bends you to its will
We are helpless in its power

We look for it but it finds us
It devours without regard
It destroys without regard
It brought nations to its knees
And lifted its people

It gives power without regard
It enslaves without regard
We are but pebbles in its wake
When it overflows in us

And yet.... Its ugly twin holds
Power over it

It consumes without regard
It shapes without regard
It bends you to its will
We are helpless in its power....
