||Caught in Between||
I am caught in between everything,
In the non-existent middle ground,
What to be and what not to be,
Caught in between ideals,
Contrasting and contradicting adjectives.
And this war sickens me
the war between red and blue,
Shades of red and shades of blue,
While I am at the dead center white.
Isn’t it fine to love the intense red with the color blue?
I am Caught in between opinions with an opinion,
Between religions with a religion,
Between reasons with a reason.
Caught between perspectives with curiosity,
Caught between books,
Mouths of the tellers of the same story,
I am Caught in between the victim and the culprit.
I can hear the muffled cries of the one in pain,
Dry throat and the breaking screams,
And the fist clenches,
But at the end of the day when it is dark,
And the mixed up parts of the weak brain illuminate,
Dark within acknowledges the dark,
And the light within acknowledges the light.
Something always nods,
One thing or the other.
Like Shibi the king,
The weight is always equaled with similar from within.
One thing that happens when you fall in love with truth
Is that there is no good truth, bad truth,
Just the reality,
But today it has blurry corners and smudged text.
I am Caught in between what read and what wrote,
What thought and what showed.
Caught in between the two ends of morality,
The reasons equaling the weight of doings
Nature and nurture pleading ‘not guilty’.
Caught in between what everybody wants and what they want,
What is left and what right,
And what is the new left and new right after you shift?
And after all, who are you to choose,
You Immigrant to the truth,
Ignorant of the whole,
Knowing only what is in one plank?
But even then, It is a sin to wear a rainbow,
To chase one
In a monochrome world.
