Indifference quickly becomes “unkind.”
It’s not possible to find pure black or white.
There is no right or wrong way to find.
Neutrality is easy to keep in mind
when everyone else is determined to fight
but indifference quickly becomes unkind
when everyone else, stuck in their own bind
expects help. The rest of the plight:
explanation – no right way to find
a careful balance when they’ve lined
up their own people to die by night,
by day, indifference is no longer kind
and even, in fact, those who claim it fine
will find themselves smothered by forces of light
because they thought there was no wrong way to find
perfect balance. Apparently what’s mine
is less important under right of might
until neutrality is different from indifference unkind.
There is a visible difference between “neutral” and “left behind”
when we have moved beyond the balance, it’s trite
for happy endings but a wrong way to find
could kill our souls: if you stay unaligned,
you are too objective finding what is right.
Neutral is not indifferent. Indifferent is unkind
when you stumble on the only wrong way to find.
