The Libra Factor
I feel a peculiar melancholy
As though waiting for a tide of tears
From some part of myself which I do not control.
More refreshment, I think, than despair.
'Sheer nonsense.' chides my brain,
But I take no heed.
Life is not purely Reason, Physics or Emotion.
Balance - all is Balance.
I'm not Libra-born for nothing.
As I grew out of childhood
And became more knowledgable of worldly ideas,
The view of pre-determined personality
According to the placement and travelling of stars
I had no thought of conforming to the Libra 'notion'
I was living within the parameters already,
Unconsciously, consistently, contentedly.
It was unsettling to realize this.
It was not reasonable.
It's not easy balancing Logic on one hand
And Magic on the other.
It makes me wholly sympathetic
To Life itself - all Life.
So, I straddle the line with a laugh.
And I consider the concept of Beauty -
Because Beauty has no boundaries ......
