Shadows and Light

what brings you here

when you start to see

the forest for the trees

amid the branches tangled by the chaos

of the wind

you will know

the depths below

are only tangled roots

that hold you in

what goes up

must come down

the light that grows

also slows

the reach below the ground

push and pull

it takes it's toll

and entropy will win

but not for good

it's understood

it will all begin again

This poem brings light to what we already know, it's in our bones, our deep understanding of how the world works around us. There are many ways to describe this duality, and I enjoy putting words together in new ways when thinking about how everything works around me. How I work inside, physically, and in my consciousness.

Thank you for taking the time to read.
