Surrounded by Certainty



Surrounded by Certainty
By Ruth Calder Murphy

I'm surrounded by Certainty:
everyone else's
idiosyncratic
Absolute Truths.
Each of them is different
as day and night,
yet linked
inextricably
as day and night are.
Diverse certainties,
Equal and opposite,
dancing like multi-faceted,
many-coloured angels
on the dazzling head
of an infinite pin...
So certain,
so differently definite
That I feel free
to be me -
To walk amongst them,
dance with them,
to be spectrum-split
and sparkled by them,
to be liberated,
to find a way through,
enhanced
but never held by them -
finding treasures
in new troves
and hope
in new heavens,
supported by old certainties,
Balanced
not
bound.
