To Be Poets - Crossroads - Banaz Palani


Pro’s and many cons
The always so gracious fight
of considerations
between my left and right
The struggle, I just couldn’t decide.

Yes, then maybe no
However I turn
The paradox of control
between my body parts
Which one was I and
Which one did I have to let go.

Truth chaperoned the false
overshadowed by naivety
by seeing the bright
within the shattered souls
Always fighting gravity
Made me lose all ability.

It’s never so easy
To make up my mind
as the axons jump
and the road seemed endless
to reach that finish line.
