The Path of In-Between

The Path of In-Between
The Path of In-Between

I tread the path of in between,
impaled by the truths I in stead have gleaned,
and see what stirs a heart, a soul,
and also what tears apart the whole,
in the undoing of our dreams.

Never have I forsaken my truth,
for it resounds within and lets not the ruse
acclimate, for deceit is profound,
so many minds on selfish ground
push agendas to the braking.

I shall not be ruled
by their misguided delusions,
intrusions of thought that harm all else,
the damage that can tear a life apart,
while souls of good stand amid the salted earth.

Knowing what these fools orchestrate,
is a burden to a caring soul,
witness to their selfish acts bestowed
upon the innocents, those righteous
enough to see the good inside.

Injustice I know is an illusion of time,
balance eventually reminds us
that life takes care of its own,
the home of those who abide,
and those who contend, eventually slide from place.

But I cannot repress my vengeful side,
the one that wants the evil pay, yet,
tis not mine to demand or procure,
and life in perfection will in time secure, the wrongs,
and those responsible the recompense.

I tread the path of in between,
seeing too much yet knowing the scheme,
and although it pains me to bare witness,
I can but understand the lessons,
the bitterness of ignorant souls.

    Your poetry always grips the gut, Tony – even when you tread the in-between path. Beautiful, poignant and brilliant, as always.

    Tony your 6th stanza talked to me. I’ve had much difficulty since my divorce 18 years ago to forget, forgive and stop hating. It’s been a struggle, it’s like I’m vengeful wanting recompense, yet knowing I will never receive it, must move on. So I’ve come to grips with the knowledge that some day we must all pay the piper for our deeds here on earth. I’m now at peace since I gave forgiveness a couple of years ago and freed my soul.
