Middle

Is the middle such a bad place?

I don’t believe that you’re all wrong.

I don’t have the audacity to think that I’m all right.

So when did it become taboo to find a central space?

Your background, family, and hundreds of little life experiences

Have added up to turn you into you who you are.

My rearing, faith and years of emotions I can’t quite describe

Have all led me to reach for a different star.

But is the middle such a bad place?

In that central circle can’t we find those every-human moments

That teach us love, passion, hard work, and to set a pace?

Somewhere between these seemingly (but not so very) opposite sides

Don’t we find our saving grace?

  1. Although I’m a contrast person, I do understand people that stands somewhere in the middle. Besides, I think most people must have experience to be there at least once in their life.

    1. I just feel like we have lost our ability to work together/understand both sides of an issue in our country. In a small way, this poem is about that.
