Things in the Way
by Jason Tomlinson 

I have two sides that are in opposition 

and their conflict manages daily fruition 
my giver and my taker don’t like to share
the one wants to be here the other over there
the one wants to bless the other receive 
the one wants to tell the other believe
today my taker was focused on his way to live
with little to no thought on how or why to give
so it took me a bit longer to come up with this right here
some things got in the way but I got my act in gear
