Really Now

The war between nature and nurture never stops
Reality is a war,
Imagination is a war
War between what is and what is not

Nature and nurture
None exists without the other
None stands in for the other
None compliments the other
A constant war
An unending battle

Nature controls nurture
Nurture controls nature
A sea of confusion
You either feel something or you don’t
In-between is not a word
It is neither a statement
You can’t hide behind it
It can’t protect you
It can’t speak for you
May-be?! – stands for uncertainty
Life has no gray areas
Life has no maybe’s – and certainly no perhaps
Maybe – Perhaps – that’s all imagination
Which is a war between what is
And what is not

In life – so I have learned, there are no maybe’s or perhaps-es
It is either Yes!
Or No!
You either feel
Or feel not

Nature controls how we feel
Nurture teaches us to ignore those feelings
Nature gives us days and nights
Nurture dispels time and seasons – and replaces it with space

If nature was stronger
I’d feel no pain
Feel no hate – wait, hate is a strong word
Feel no resentment
Feel no remorse
Feel no loss
Feel no sadness
Feel no hunger pangs
Feel no need for anything – or anyone
Feel no need for recognition – or praise
Feel no need to move another step
Feel no temper
Feel no fear
Feel no obligation
Feel nothing

I’m a realist – not a pessimist
And if nature truly was stronger
I’d feel no care in the world
Never suffer a broken spirit
Never suffer a broken heart
Never suffer from anguish
Never suffer rejection
Never know pain
Never feel resentment
Never really care
For real
