Here you will find the writings of the poet Theodore Waterfield

The Razor’s Edge

There are good lies and bad lies.
Good truths and bad truths.
There are sound reasons
for putting forever in a box,
and bad ones for caging birds.
It is our capacity to be illogical
that makes us so reasonable.
Imaginative that rescues reality.

So with my glass half full
I toast the half empty,
and thank life
for its inevitable surmise.
The incredible love I have for some,
and the unavoidable hatred
I have for others.
To be a man without perfect pitch,
who can listen,
and forgive the unforgivable.
For those who are sorry.
