An offering to Janus

Since Charles Darwin's time
we have known that life  
"as we know it"
is - or is defined by - struggle.

So it's really not worth living by
judgmental beings who haven't the energy
to struggle and strive.
 
Thus life ("as we know it")
can repudiate itself.
Which may explain our two-mindedness
and reluctance towards suicide.

auban,

Oh, I was excited when I saw that title! I can't stop smiling.

I've never had a poem written for me.

It means a lot. Thank you.

Well, Janus, don't let that head expand TOO much. It was also an offering to the two-faced god. Thus respecting two beings at the same time :-)

See a bisexual version on one of my websites here:

auban,

HeeHee, I wasn't too sure, so I decided to claim your poem as my own since he already has all those temples, statues, coins, etc.! I'm not usually that forward, but I'm sure he'll understand.

I've always liked him because he looks to the past and the future where I live in my head. It's the present I have a problem with.

He's also the god of doors and doorways, and I was a little stunned last night to find your tribute to that very same subject in all those photographs. Serendipity. Or synchronicity. Wonderful.
