by Frank Murri

If one is to embark upon the path
of altering opinions,
one must be prepared to walk
upon broken glass.

Even though the pull of social gravity
may press deeply upon each step,
one must walk,
and continue to walk
with the pressure of wisdom,
so as not to cut one's soul upon the glass.
