Game of the Labyrinth

You can never lose this uncanny game of life
for you play both opposing sides of the table:
the other is simply you; and you are the other
and so you cannot ever fail to be just yourself
any more than the sky can fail to be just sky;
but we are the beings who must ourselves seek
who we are inside this our physical labyrinth
of the good and the bad, the love and the fears
our hearts contain these myriad signs unclear
ever hidden in whom we believe that we are,
yet whom we cannot ever be neither near nor far
and that is the puzzle through we must learn
traversing the dark, towards Self we will turn.
