The middle binds us

the middle is closest to both sides
both sides may be vibrant
but only the full spectrum
can be seen in between.
turn the two sides into one
for a more complete whole.


Drinking myself half way to full

A grab a glass and my favourite drink.
I pour it to the brim.
Slowly, I begin to sip my beverage.
I get about half way when I decide I’ve had enough.
I leave the glass where it is.
I don’t need anymore.
A person notices me just staring at the glass.
They ask why I don’t bother finishing this half empty glass.
Another comes over and tells me it’s still half full.
I look at both of them as say,
why can’t it be both?
Forget it, I’ll just finish it off.
At least then we know what it is.
