Poem -

Up or down?

Up or down?

just when a ‘we’
becomes ill-defined
we look up to the valley
and down to the sky
just when an ‘us’
hides behind a facade
we look behind the horizon
and beyond the yard                                           

and we find a ‘why’ and a ‘what’
and a ‘when’ and a ‘how’
as we stumble and fumble
to reach here and now                                        

so a ‘you’ and a ‘me’
can become ‘us’ with glue
and togetherness cries
until ‘we’ make a two                                          

who soar in delight
and ask; ‘how did we do’
stick to ‘us’ known as one
made of ‘me’ and of ‘you’                                  

and just when a ‘we’
is truly defined
we look down to the valley
and up to the sky
