Poem - Transition in Latitude

The poem “Transition in Latitude” was inspired by the thought that a fuller acceptance by society would include acknowledgment of my being a work in progress.


Transition in Latitude

The choice is made in the soul
if a decision is the right word
instead a knowing represents
identity that fits the best

fully vested to the outcome
even though the outside lags
knowledge is held in the heart
asks for acceptance to come first

separation of biased thoughts
from the person that I am
attacks a target that does not exist
even as I must persist

an integration is my lot
with a hope the world will grasp
the whole offered up for view
with transition in latitude.
