So Much Change

Caught in the middle
Everything’s changing
I’m the fulcrum now
Watching the hurricane spin around me
The carnage and drama
And my core strength
Keeping me stable
While we spin balanced with this heavy object
My new hammer throw
Gathering data
Gathering momentum
For a torrential display of power
Grace, and beauty
One final,
Perfected triumph
On the world’s stage
Flinging far, far away
What is cruel, hidden, and festering
Exposing within us all
What is worthy of glory, honor, and praise
Weathering the storm
And emerging with renewed strength
Again and again
And again and again
