The outcast

is not an outcast

Memories of the now and not yet.

Heart filled with songs of forever.

The city that endures when all is made new.

The traveller or tourist?

The citizen or exile?

The forgotten or chosen?

A great fire burns. But few stop by.

They crossed to the other side.

Marked as the enemy.

Forever by your side or fallen away.

Does the limitless have limits.

Mercy or love? Freedom or choice?

Complaining when ignored but loud when spoken to.

The light shone on the bannister.

I just had to take the first step.
