Just a Point of Reference

Just a Point of Reference
Just a Point of Reference

Should light become the darkness
and darkness become the light,
what a tan I’d get while sleeping,
just dreaming in the night,
and candles lit would light be drowned
as shadows glow like sun,
and dark deeds would be appreciated,
kindness the devil done,
and what was up now down it seems,
confusion reigns and real a dream,
but what it does does not redeem
belief in either side.

For if darkness became the light
and light the vesture of the night,
tis words alone that ring askew,
do words alone not make it true:
its just a point of reference,
so do we rearrange our preference,
kind souls in a darkness plight,
evil creeping in the light,
its just a point of view;
so next time you light a flame,
to guide your sight from darkness,
think of words and what they mean,
or does that taint, regardless?

Life is rarely lived in extremes,
somewhere in the middle more often,
and what we see in either side,
is an investment that can override our dreams,
can color all of what we think we know,
bestow upon us delusions many,
for anything can shake the ground,
when truth barely can resound in time,
to lead us to a trusted path,
the aftermath of failure,
when we assume all is on one side alone,
instead of balance, a sacred palindrome.

    Wow, that took a lot of thought for sure. And what was it like before there were words, when crude images depicted everything? It can pretty much boggle the mind when thinking about how words were created and what they mean. Today it is more important than ever when using words to know what they mean – one wrong word can start a war. Thus, meaning and balance is key to success. Great work and thought provoking here, Tony. Maybe I should read the verse during the day and not in the middle of my night. Then I could think of wiser things to say. LOL Still, I enjoyed reading this verse.
