Wander between both worlds – A Poem

Each of us knows the way

of the world:

the dominant, with permission

and respect as compass points,

tops the submissive.

It’s a tale told on the human stage

time and time again,

throughout cultures as varied

as the clouds on a sunny day.

But what if you wander

between both worlds

of dominance and submission?

What if you choose

to let go,

to embrace the pain

and remember a fundamental truth

wired deeply into our DNA,

a truth we avoid daily

with as much fervor as we avoid

the grave.

The pain reminds us we’re alive,

a realization which is the ultimate pain.
