Touches of light and dark
Leaves a balance tied stark
In illusions, pinpointing Sanity’s lack
A violent tumbling in between
Births gains and ruins; all in one.
In totality, it dwells in obscurity
It’s hard to decipher as mortals
Except you’re in experience like a few of us
Who’ve waltzed on the brink of death
Or watched it’s cold hands grip another
The rainbow beautifies, no doubt
Endless rain ruins it, every inch
Rain, not in the manner of condensation
Or all that scientific illustration
I mean rain in its purest form
The naked type that kills you
Breaks you, moulds you, which ever way
To hell with Umbrellas and Raincoats
If it doesn’t rain on you,
How would you learn, ever?
Rainbows and rains like works of art, cohabiting
Alas, it’s nature and reality working overtime
Yet we never seem to get it
Pain is meant to be felt not killed
How else shall you be schooled?
Tarry not, til’ you’re gone six feet
Before your mind realizes
The beauty of fails, pains and gains
Dead people don’t feel, they peel and rot.
Now that you can, choose your lot.
Call it an infinitesimal approach to logics
Of life and death intertwined
Nothing on earth screams louder than both
If you’re scared of dying
How would you experience life fully?
Tales and epistles boil down to one…
To walk off the face of earth, a hero
Prepare to taste the bitter and sweet
For if you desire the rainbows,
You’ve got to brace up for the rains.
