The Pendulum

We are a pendulum swinging
from “I love you” to “I don’t trust you”
and I am getting sick from the motion
I push at each end
trying to stay there a second
and see whats below me
to relish in the present

We are a river rising
each moment moving closer to crest
and wash away the homes
where safety, understanding and love reside
The foundations remain
but the walls lay shaken, bent
and stained

We are a star shining
pushing our photons out into the abyss
we stand as a point of light
for someone else to see
we can burn brighter and burn faster
but we’ll surely explode
because entropy is something we’ll never master
