Which side of me do you see,
The dark side, or the light?
Do you see the positive,
Negative, left or right?
I am confused and at a loss,
Not knowing what to be,
White or black, even brown,
Which one of these is me?
Shielded eyes, pulled and held,
One hand as hard as stone,
The other black and charred and burnt,
Why can’t they leave me alone?
My demons want a part of me,
To be what they decide,
Tell me then, what do you see,
The light, or darker side?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    awesome poem Di! Well done! ❤

  4. That’s a majestic poem of light and dark. Can feel the struggle between positive light and negative dark throughout this one. Well done!

    I like this poem, pensitivity101.
    “I’ve seen web friends write Di,
    But I don’t know your name,
    So, I’m sorry”.
