Mutuality? - Poem by Sarah HudsonPierce

What I am asking, questioning-
Is whether mutuality is a reality-
Something we can grasp-
Hold onto
Within this life?
Is it possible to love
And be loved in return
In an equal degree-
Is It possible for two people to be
Synchronized in their feelings-
Intensity of devotion-
Or are we too fickle to achieve-
Attain this quest-
The most urgent need
Of humankind-
Or is man always plagued
With uncertainty-
And is it this dilemma that often
Causes man to give up on
Loving relationships-
Dying in despair?
