I AM ONE IN THE MIDDLE

Pushed and pulled
Squeezed and pressured
Looked to and pointed at
Expected and set up with hidden expectations
Asked to lead and criticized in the leading
I am one in the middle

Foregoing securities
Risking for hope
Believing in community
Trusting for guidance
Putting it on the line
I am one in the middle

Casting off convention
Out on a limb
Digging for truth
Straddling disciplines
Witnessing grace
I am one in the middle

Past and future
There and here
Those and these
Them and ours
That and this
I am one in the middle

Transition
Opposition
Redemption
Reconciliation
New vision
I am graced to be in the middle
