Bitter Sweet

This bitter sweet life,
who has the recipe to blend
maybe God will know?

Bitter Sweet,
can both exist side by side and be palatable,
leaving no aftertaste?
Do they form a wholesome whole, 
as I am told?

When bitter is present 
do I focus on the sweet to balance?
Will sweet mingle with bitter
 and lessen it's bite?

Endless circles of
should we,
shouldn't we?
If we do
then how will it effect relevant others?
If we don't
then how will it effect relevant us?

Sweet Connie Mae,
Dreaming of bonding days with my grand-baby.
Listening to 'Beachlife' wondering if the day will come?
Beauty I find in places like Deeply Humbled
this post and video touches me deep.

I believe it's my first visit here. Should we or shouldn't we... I know what you are talking about! Beautiful poetry also. :)

Intriguing work....Life can certainly be just that - bitter and sweet, at the same time

Bitter sweet- not meant to blend, but balance.

Everything hinges on that conditional word, doesn't it?

Dear Ms. Foxy... Yin and Yang of life, the balance. Sweet and sour, (bitter), good and bad, cold and hot. So, when do you decide that you need to make a decision?

Much Peace

at times balancing the bitter and the sweet is a moment to moment decision, other times it is effortless. wishing you well.
