Balancing On A Turning World


Whether I choose the path of light or darkness
It really does not matter
For even if my decision tips the scale, I stress
This world, it will not shatter

For when the sun begins its decline
And rises to chase away night
One side begins to shine
And the other loses its light

But does this lack of bright makes us evil?
Even if we’ve done nothing but good
And when the sun reaches the peak of its height
Does evil always do what it should?

Light cast away shadows but at the same time it creates
And darkness envelops shine but lets moonlight come through
These two forces fight as if it is their fate
But neither is false or true

One’s light is darkness, one’s darkness is light
And both lay their truths unfurled
For even if this battle is brought out sight
It’s impossible to balance on a turning world
