Complexity of Humans

Such is a human being

That the same hands that caress can also hit

Hit as much as comfort

That he who cries has made others cry

That a heart that loves deeply can also hate just as much

That the meanest person we know can also be generous

That “why me” can be uttered by one who walks all over others

Such is the human condition

Like the coin with its head and tail

I’m no statistician, don’t ask me about probabilities

but the coin does have a side, the edge

Neither head nor tail, neither good nor evil

Simply there, but with the possibility always

Of landing on either of the two.
