Garden Path

How do you balance

the kind and the cruel

 

The good and the bad

of life’s golden rule

 

As reason pulls tightly,

treason pulls back

 

Living in conflict,

together intact

 

Tragic, comedic,

while often as both

 

 Angels and Demons

commingle betrothed

 

A savior, destroyer,

calling our name

 

A garden of riches

—caught in the flames
