The Two Faces Of The World In One Body... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

as i see it now
each has a share of what we all have
a chunk of caprice
sins and sorrows
disheartening diseases
to each his own
others are as silent as the sand
agonizing under the scorching sun
others chant their pains
to the gods and
lords,
asking for relief
no one is exempted
from all these cycles of
human tragedies
i sit upon a mountain
top upon a view
to look at the eyes of sorrow
to hear the songs of
grief
to contemplate upon
some joys
and happenings

the world has two faces
in one body
joy and pain are one and the same
like sun and moon
like day and night
like ebb and tide.
