Origami (The Balancing Act)
But how do you do it?
By folding parts of the East inwards when prejudice gleams in eyes opposite —
by contracting inwards humanism taught in schools (and life) from the jingoist gaze we love —
by listening ahead of speaking: always measure the audience before treading the waters of
potential revelation (what you are) — always inwards, never outwards, this is the requirement of balancing
two lives, two dreams; one for the roots, that lies in the past, one for the future, once you’re
to dream that there might be some say in how it shapes, the form it takes,
with a little help from kismet.
