The Two Sided Universe

Life unfurls with timely elegance.
Attractive blooms herald the branches revival.
The flowers will bear fruit for your sustenance.
Soak your eyes in the exultation of the universe.
Behold the glory of this creation.
We will reap the order of the sun,
And glory in his garden.
Where the nectar of life we will own.

I have inhaled the ether of Heaven!

Illusions I must not drink.
Our source of warmth will someday expire.
Long term survival of the fit is futile.
The dust of this race will float,
In the perpetual frost of the aftermath.
All life, knowledge, and perception will sleep.
This clump of world will disperse,
Throughout the endless chill of space.

I have inhaled the smoke of Hades!
