I AM ONE IN THE MIDDLE

Can't remember how many years ago I wrote this, but feeling it afresh these days

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
