Where Others Have Turned

Is anyone ever a total fraud

  or totally sincere


Is anyone committed beyond mere space

  to a notion fond and dear


Is anyone ever one hundred percent

  with subtraction the rule of the day


Is anyone better than what they believe

  or worse than a mother can pray


Is anyone ever truly in charge

  of that moment that slips through the hand


Is anyone willing to dance beyond hope

  to a melody lost by the band


Is anyone chosen from those who are not

  or entitled to what can’t be earned


Is anyone welcomed straight into the light

   —on a path where all others have turned
