The pendulum seeks a straight path,
but travels the arc of Earth’s desire
The pendulum seeks a perfect plumb,
yet sways eternal to Nature’s will
The pendulum seeks a way
that becomes corrupted
the pendulum seeks and end
that cannot be reached
But this, too, is the way of its being
And the truth of its swing.
So as it is in life
You will always find
a bit of what is good for you
before you know it is needed.
