Brown eyes upon blue life
living two lives in one body
they ask me to choose,
producing twisted answers
questioning my existence.
The only peace I’ve got
is on the board, catching
the waves however they
Scars are left as testimonies by
the cutting away of my character,
the questioning of my allegiance.
Funny, neither side wanted me
unless it’s for their pet project
of filling me with hate and
how much can she take before
On one side of the track, broad smiles
are meant to beguile, make you believe,
to open your heart-
only to hear whispers and sinister
snickers from the throats
of saints in the pews.
You gotta watch those devils
and protect what purity you have left.
The opposing side, well, they’re folks
you can at least appreciate, their candid nature.
I prefer fists to candy coated lies
Pick your poison, as it were.
While society tried ripping me in two,
I held fast.
I realized I didn’t have to choose-
to be the light and the dark.
I’m both and what a wonder,
a miracle that is.
Where they see with one eye,
I have two.
I’ve lived double the life they
negotiate God to extend.
Who’s been on the winning side after all?
