Realisation and distraction,
the curse of one another.
The curse they know because they are,
but equal to each other.
Growth of each, extends the curse,
dilutes the truth they stem from.
But look at what’s diluting them,
the substance extending – its will to diverge.
What misconception this creates –
expansion despite resistance.
Expansion is resistance –
the substance is the curse.
But one is roots and one is fruit,
the fruit is tempting time.
It welcomes its neighbours, seeks to recruit.
While the roots are the ones to dine.
Each stem from common substance,
the roots create fruit in abundance;
must therefore be the same.
The fruit is the roots to gain.
