ANTITHETICAL

ANTITHETICAL

What would you do if offered affordable beach property?
Sounds good... lest supposing proviso be toxic wasteland and poverty
Prospects of owning transformed – the choice unappealing
Investment and value revealing—negating negative feeling

Daily investing in self-sufficiency, effort, greed and selfish pride
Rewards we may reap, perchance-- a few accolades confirm that we tried
Diversifications, independent autonomy, have natural appeal
Contrary principles, lasting effects— steal...cunningly conceal

Feeding compulsions of selfishness, at odds with our free spirit
As we try to escape erratic persuasions of worldly limits
Repetitive mental and emotional garbage-to love or be loved
Divided homes, divided lives, small minded, lopsided – gloved

To endeavour affections, serenity—empathetic, exuberant life
Compassionate spirit, sense of commitment—conviction, not strife
Not just ideas in our heads or our sentimental heart
Ideally... working through implications of life that keep us apart
