Wander between both worlds -A Poem

Each of us knows the way
of the world:

the dominant, with permission
and respect,
tops the submissive.

It is a tale told on the human stage
time and time again,
throughout cultures as varied
as the clouds on a sunny day.

But what if you wander
between both worlds
of dominance and submission?

What if you choose
to let go,
to embrace the pain
and remember a fundamental truth
wired deeply into our DNA,
a truth we avoid daily,
with as much fervor as we avoid
the grave:

the pain reminds us we're alive.
That realization is the ultimate pain.
