Right brain, left brain

Hail, O guardians of perception --
you who look both right and left,
allowing me to see
into the depths of reality --
I see a question in your eyes,
in the tilt of your reflected heads
and wonder:
which of you is guiding me today?
Which is in shadow,
and which is lit for all to see,
and when will I have the courage
to step down the path
you guard so closely
into the verdant fields of acceptance
that lie beyond this yard
I've played in for so long.
