The Line...

Between the here and there,
between courage and fear,
between love and longing,
between knowing & belonging,
between fisticuffs and handshakes,
between letting go and heartbreaks,
between knowledge and wisdom,
between thoughts and action,
between inertia and initiative,
between certain and tentative,
between criticism and mudslinging,
between ignorance and awakening,
between you and me,
between they and we
there is only a thin line
dwindling somewhere in your mind;

step across it!

between near and dear
between red and blood
between life and death
between he and she...
a hair line fracture...

I love this! After all that confusion, all we need is a simple call to action. Hard to cross the line though but eventually we all have to!
