Why do we overdo everything, live in superlatives
From body shaming to body positive
From being too inhibited to being too bold
Does the middle ground no longer any appeal hold?
Breaking taboos and barriers is good
But does that mean all of us should
Tilt our behavior to the other extreme
Where liberal ideas start to seem
Equally oppressive as any expression of dissent
Is promptly shot down, in a manner vehement
There is a Goldilocks spot to be found
In everything, if we look around
And settle somewhere in the middle- it could be
A place where both extremes converge eventually
The polarization and strong feelings that extremes evoke
Would decrease, less fires would be stoked..
Before I expound on hypothetical ideals, I should look
Within myself, adjust my playbook
When my thoughts towards the rigid extremes deviate
I should try to center them to a more neutral state..
