Mr. Browning, I Wish You Weren’t Right

Standard

A great poet once said:

“There are those who believe something, and therefore will tolerate nothing; and on the other hand, those who tolerate everything, because they believe nothing.” — Robert Browning, English poet (born this date in 1812; died in 1889).

Mr. Browning, I Wish You Weren’t Right

Somewhere in our middles
A great nothing resides-
Not my truth
Or yours-
For it’s a blinding thing:
Equality, or
Justice, or
Righteousness.
To be right
We had to be wronged;
To be wronged we must concede-
That we are different;
Un-Balanced by the great scale
Of thermodynamics;
And the opinion of God,
little g,
Lies not on either side,
Because choosing gives
Perspective;
And we’re all at the center
When looking beyond
Our own eyes
And when we draw within
We become diminished.
