one side and the other

The one side says to the other, 
“Who are you kidding? 
You’ve fooled them all.”
(You feel a loss of spontaneity,
a sudden fall.) 
“Positive feedback belies
the reality of your falsehood.
Throw up your hands, 
you did all that you could.”

And so the other replies, 
with a smile, knowing,
“There are no sides, my friend, 
and it’s not about confidence.
It’s about going on lightly
through whatever circumstance.”
(You keep going.)
