Ebb and Flow

Inside each of us
there is a core or reason
that seeks to balance out
irrational extreme.

The saint must also
a sinner be, in that
darkest corner,
hidden away.

And even the beast
that stalks its prey,
must feel the glimmer
of light, lit within.

There are no absolutes
in life, it’s an ebb and flow,
as with the tides,
or the cycling seasons.

The swirling forces,
the yin, the yang,
that push and pull,
when brought together,
give birth to balance.
