on either side

on one side
of the frothy banks of the mind,
is the river of death 
with its eddies of blood 
heckling swirls of hopelessness,
every day peck-peck-pecking away 
until there's no trace of what you were
or what you could have been
only a black wreathed mole to carry the soul
into the deepest black hole of the night-

on the other side
of the frothy banks of the mind
a pearly river of life
with its swirls of hope
eddies of love and light, 
everyday an endless golden array 
of heart warming sprays,
lifting the mind into god woven skies...
cherub birthstones filling in sunken lives...
on either side 
of the frothy banks of the mind,
a river of death
a river of life-
