Sunsets don’t make you old… Song 265

I sit and contemplate my life. Every extreme I have experienced. My valleys just as deep as my mountains are high. Devastating despair. Ecstatic happiness. Drunken excess. Sober determination. This pendulum swings so far each way. I need to find the tipping point and go no further. My death and rebirth affords me the opportunity to achieve balance. Somewhere in the middle lies the path I seek. All fear needs a counter. All happiness needs melancholia. All darkness needs some light. The path is hidden somewhere in the middle.

Song 265: “The Middle Path”

Somewhere in the middle
When night turns into day
The scales sway, you find your way
And a balance is found
You can fight the pain

Somewhere in the middle
Where black turns into white
The shades of grey point the way
Just before the tipping point
You can see what’s right

For every smile a tear may fall
You may sit in silence
For every trial a fear is lost
You can fight for truth

Somewhere in the middle
Where heat turns into cold
A passion play can keep you warm
But first get through the day
Sunsets don’t make you old

For every smile a tear may fall
You may sit in silence
For every trial a fear is lost
You can fight for truth

Somewhere in the middle
A path hides
