The Other Side

Some say I ended up
living in the wrong direction

since Im from across the tracks
where cars are rusty
and housing mostly apartments

the cut of your clothes
haircut and thickness of wallet
too often

determining a future.

Yet, I prevail beyond limitations --
from limb to limb I do climb
to stars and beyond

barriers no longer restraining.

2016 Richard L. Provencher
