The Swing

Oscillating between being me
And knowing you
Is a difficult sojourn
A stem teacher and philosopher
A long bearded experience.

This swing moves
It does not let up
Sometimes I am dazed
As it sweeps higher and higher
Amidst protests and fear
But I am in the seat and go I must
There is stability in the precariousness.

There is security
In not being static
So I move each day
Traversing spaces
Exploring planets
Discovering surprises
Accomodating shock.

Learning about Difference.
