One side of us is good and the other is bad
We are like old gramophone records
Sometimes we are playing the good side
Then late we play the reverse.
The brighter the appearance
The darker the shadow
so Jung decided
Which may explain
why he and Heidegger
did not see the truth about the Nazis.
Jung got a top job
And later France
Jung was unable
to use his own insights
I guess we are all a bit like that.
But we must keep trying…..
We need to accept the pain
Of knowing we have a shadow.
If not,we will do harm
for if we don’t know it
we cannot control it
