Have you ever felt torn?
Away from the places you loved,
Outside of the places you hated?
It strikes splits into me to achieve
Such
Exact gross inflation,

Such processed divinity of self in two parts.

Severed, perspiring, torn,
It is too simple to assume that I am one piece,
Of both fear and courage,
Hope and apathy

I call to life and to death
To fix earthly things
I conjure both upward and downward glances to see
Everything in the middle

And it is here
That I know I am complete.

Sometimes I feel like I'm two people. I think everyone does. But I wrote this after a long drawn out struggle with trying to find myself. I still haven't, in the terms that people would like to define "the finding of one's self", but I think that's what drives people, what makes people who they are. The search.
