Paired or Not

We are made with working pairs. Your right hand got your left. Your left ear got your right. Your right eye got your left. Your left lung got your right.

We work with built-in pairs. A scissor will never be a scissor, it should be scissors even when added with the phrase “a pair”. Trousers or some called jeans will never be a trouser nor a jean, for the right leg needs the left leg, always.

But we are from a single cell. We are run but one mind. We live with a uni-heart. We are made by one God.

In nights like this, when the clock struck past 12 midnight and you have no one but yourself, you will learn best:

with a pair, or without, your home, your only home, is nowhere but inside

  1. Great . I love the line “your only home is inside you.” Perhaps, you also suggest we need to be whole in ourselves whether we become part of a “pair” or not. Thoughtful piece 🙂

  2. Absolutely! I was hoping for this conclusion as well.
    Something once said, stuck with me- a relationship is not two halves that make one. It is two wholes coming together.


      1. Apparently, WP has unfollowed some blogs for me as well. I’ve had to follow them back. 😟


  3. This one again strikes a chord on the very basis of our existence. See, I already told you. Paired or not, the individuality has to continue. How startling it is to see that even the word “individuality” has the word “duality”. Your words. my dearest, are lyrical philosophy
