New Mexico Rainbow by Smith

New Mexico Rainbow by Smith

Good people do bad things.
They make mistakes.
They are still good people,
all the same.
We have our own learning
to do; a river to cross,
bridges to burn, sins to atone.
You might sink or swim
in the ocean of life,
it all depends on the baggage
you swim with and the school
of fish that you follow.
They might lift you
up, up, up
toward the light or they
might drag you
down, down, down
to the depths of a blinding black sea;
a living allegory to Heaven
and Hell. Angels and Demons
watch people in personal
purgatories Dogma-paddling
to keep their heads above water;
afraid of drowning,
but not knowing why.

~ Jen Pezzo
