Weather you walk your path in total darkness or blazing light you are equally blind. But blend the two into balanced portions and your path becomes much clearer.

From my hands

Forever I have walked the earth

From my hands I spill out the eternal fate of the world

From my right hand spills forth chaos, death and destruction

Spreading the fires of change in all directions

From my left hand spills forth order, birth and renewal

Spreading the calm sense of stability in all directions

As I walk the earth there are those always who cry out to me

No! no more chaos, we need peace they plead as they reach out to stop my right hand

But my right hand does not waver

No! no more order, we need change they plead as they reach out to stop my left hand

But my left hand does not waver

Because forever I will walk the earth

The eternal fate of the world spilling out from my hands


So which one do you curse?


  1. Wow, you are back!!
    Is this a specific mythical character you are talking about? Indian mythology has a similar concept of creation, sustenance and destruction with three separate deities given the task of each. But this one goes a step ahead.. one hand creates, one hand destroys. Very thought-provoking.
    Maybe we all have a similar kind of tug-of-war inside our hearts.. the conscience that tells us what is right n what is wrong.. the voice that knows the good from the bad?
    I can go on n on.. lovely comeback!

  2. Beautiful writing, as always, Looksfar. So rich with images, and it makes one think. Nice to see you posting.

  3. Punam: No this is a mythical character of my own creation, an anthropomorphizing of the great balance. The hand that creates, the hand that destroys and the one who walks who is balance. I believe we are all the one who walks weather we realize it or not. Western mythology has something similar, the three fates, three women, one young, one middle aged and one old who spin the threads of fate... the young one spins that thread, the middle aged one weaves the pattern of reality and the old one cuts the threads at the right time. I'm glad you enjoyed.

    Sherry: Your very welcome and thank you as well.

  4. that's very fine tuned piece.
    left hand, right hand,
    our hand gesture does wonders...

    Glad to see you shine with a fresh piece.

  5. Neither. We are warped without the balance in between...such as you walk :)

  6. In this world of duality, it shall forever be cursing either is futile.

  7. Jingle: Thank you :)

    Wine: Yes the balance, I wish more walked it...

    Timoteo: Very true, both will happen in spite of all our screaming and fist waving.
