By William S. Cottringer

Living is experiencing
both paths of life—
Peace and turmoil,
right and wrong,
together and alone.

Wisdom is knowing why—
so we can see the difference
and finally find
the hidden path between,
where things rejoin.

We get our share of bruises
searching for this simple truth;
as it is revealed to us
when we don’t understand,
loitering and lost,
deaf and blind.

When we do wake up
to knowing who we are,
we start our real journey—
putting back together
all the things we took apart.
