A coin has two sides,
one side heads, the other side tails.
It should be clear that one of two sides will face up
when the coin is flipped
I learned that when I was 5.
But what if by chance, there was a third side?
A side that, although hides,
Will have far more of an effect on outcomes
Than the two sides that we bet on
One side the right one,
The other side the wrong one
Life isn't all black and white,
Whether it's wrong or right,
Heads or tails,
Red or blue
You get it, you!
Up until I was 16 I assumed life was all heads or tails
Never much thought about a gray zone,
the third side of a coin.
Until family shake ups came about,
until I found love in what was a hopeless place,
(That is a reference I am glad to embrace),
The third side of the coin is the paradox side,
The rights can be wrong
and the wrongs can be right,
it depends on what comes to light
and changes life as it moves along
M'lady has the right heart
but she had the wrong desires,
My family was worried over her,
Until I helped in doing my part,
Saving her heart by offering her a new start
I too had become associated wtih the third side of the coin,
Wanting to be a showman of the arts,
Yet having fear in making it start,
the third side has contradictions to be sure
Now I stand at 18, a young man
No longer aware of the head or the tail of a coin
Rather, I wish to disect the third side,
The body, which links the strength to the mind,
Legs to the head.
This gray zone is hard to grasp, but here I am holding tight to it
So take it upon yourself to flip a coin,
look at your life from a different window,
and if it's neither heads or tails
Then you have found the third side of the coin.
