Opposing Opposites

Rene Magritte

Birds chirping, hearing hospital screams.
Tough talking, yet practicing mindfulness.
Fish swimming, and splattered guts on the road.

Smelling decay, offset by strolling pine forests.
Accepting love, squashed with demanding power.
Rape, tormented by trusted passion.

Lost in a story, or tragically losing your way.
A powerful pinch, cuts to a soothing caress.
Eyes open, and eyes yearning to shut.

Depression, momentarily defeated by vitality.
A simultaneous world of opposites,
easily seen and hard to accept.
