Dueling Duality

A Poem

Dueling Duality

2022 Henery X ©

Everyday after I rise from rest,

I prepare myself to deal with either the spirit or the flesh,

And my way of thinking will determine the winner of the contest,

Though they work well together,

One will always be meant to make the other better,

One is finite, while the other is meant to live forever,

I always ask myself, what is the expectations,

Of your creations,

Is it to generate fortune and fame or to help unite nations?

The selfish self,

Or the selfless self out to help others generate generational wealth?

In my attempt to succeed,

I find myself constantly sidestepping greed,

With my only guide being what I want I truly need,

You're bearing witness to how I determine which side of me will follow, while the other half will gladly take the lead.

The dudes of duality dueling with neither ducking danger or dancing around decisions designed to determine the destiny of days to come. Damn! So different, but the same diligent disposition to leave the other lying dormant for the moment.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
