Between body and spirit

The peak of the mountain
is the foothill of the heavens
and you will tell everyone
that you entered that space
where the earth swallowed you down
and the sky sucked you up
Drawn between the corporeal and the spirit
you were split in two
one half to suffer this dichotomy,
the other to embrace them both
and live with this duality.

Which half do you choose?
