What We Deserve

there is wrong , there is right; there is dark, there is light
there is below, there is above; there is hate, there is love
there is evil, there is good; there is shouldn’t, there is should
there is black, there is white; there is blindness, there is sight
there is fatigue, there is rest; there is worst, there is best
there is fog, there is sun; there is hell, there is heaven


I choose the one I wish, the path leads to destruction or bliss
You hurt me then, you won’t hurt me now
I hated you then, I forgive you now
Pulling the knife from my back, I drop it to the ground
Walking silently away I will break your hold
Thankfully we often do not get what we think we deserve

  1. Love the yin and yang take on the prompt. And it is absolutely correct! I also appreciate how it gives me the feeling of “ah well…life goes on”. We should really allow ourselves to just let go more often, in knowing that there is a natural course to everything and, well, what comes around goes around. lol 🙂

    Thanks, Mark! xox


    • It is so true Kellie, we rationalize, justify etc, etc when often it is just that life, the good, the bad and the ugly! (I stole that last part :))


  2. Beautifully said, my friend…

    “You hurt me then, you won’t hurt me now
    I hated you then, I forgive you now”

    The lines above were my favorite. A valuable lesson for all of us!

    Many blessings,
