Poem - Two Sides

The poem “Two Sides” is about the power and danger of revealing the alternative to the normative.


Two Sides

The challenge of identity
is the blade with two sides
labels meant to illustrate
turning back to decimate

revelation splits the veil
slicing barriers that separate
what was concealed is now revealed
when the knife expands a life

the other edge cuts the hand
when the world retaliates
rejecting the acknowledgment
asking glove now bloody print

at the end the Valkyries
will decide the battle’s end
when the sword seeking peace
turns to fatal injury.
