Spherical Life

Since life is all spherical
lacking any sides,
perched on a sphere
surrounded by the mystical,
that knows well how to hide,
we perhaps see only one aspect clear.

I wonder if it were,
a square or a triangle
 only one side could have been occupied.
Would it then be more difficult or easier,
to disentangle
the complexities of life?

Aha! being on an edgeless circle
we can roll and occupy any part.
Just think, if we were on one side
of a square or triangle 
stranded permanently, with ends and starts
defined by edges would be our life!
