Family Forgive Me

I walk on a line between shadow and light
Troubled to please and be pleased
I wonder at things judged bad or good
Leaning to one side, I'm warmed by your white ultraviolet embrace
Lean to the other and I'm cooled by my black velvet reprieve
Wavering forward unsure of the bends in my true path
While crooked the line sways in the winds of time and place
I stumble to stay the course
One step after the other
I tremble at your recoil
and navigate for my peace
