Poles

1 Comment

I race between poles

good
bad

nice
mean

live
die

love
hate

hope
despair

intensity
apathy

evil
innocence

I am dialectic
when I balance
on the teeter-totter

I am a survivor on mission to synthesize balance from division, to find dialectical healing, learn to love what I am feeling, live in the now, show my peers how.

One thought on “Poles

  1. love the “poles” poem. I am a DBT Student-Therapist at a CMHC, and I was an english major, and I will be sharing this poem with my DBT consultation team tomorrow. Thanks for writing.
