Balancing Demons

July 23, 2008

Another human paradox,

defined by contradictions,

endlessly struggling

to find middleground,

some firm place

to settle, build

toward permanence,

escape constant swaying

between nature and society,

desire and obligation,

all the while knowing

those demons

keep us struggling,

seeking something

always just out of reach,

no matter how easy

settling may be.
