Twisted Duality – Author Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.

an ethereal higher calling to do right

alas I’m in this body where my spirit is too like siblings

we have a tenuous peace but oftentimes the battle is on

be craving bad things that look so delicious

mind scrambled into thinking yes and no-at the same time!

confused-I know what is good because rationalization is part of me

why do some people’s words make me irritable?

a desire to dominate and control

but I know it really isn’t me-or is it?

seems like the conflict is constant-moments of clarity infused with chaos over the edge or going?

wondering if others go through this Twisted Duality

opposites yet joined unnaturally





searching for ways to handle this

seamlessly a madness I call my life control, control could be secretly concealing a “Hulk” personality

hidden rage brought to the surface when dealing gets too difficult

need to be looking for self…to conquer my center can, will, must get there

a guitar solo is blasting in my head

chaotic rhythm starting to feel weird……
