He said/She Said – The Dual

the dual

He said “Where are you going to run to next?”

I’m done running! I can’t go back.

She said “You don’t belong here!”

I will create my own community.

He said “They will laugh at you!”

I will be adventure.

She said “You will fail!”

I will be faith.

He said “They will think you are crazy!”

I will be inspiration.

She said “You will be abandoned.”

I will be trust.

He said “They will reject you.”

I will be compassion.

She said “You will never find love!”

I will be love.

And with one final thrust of my sword, I slashed through the words of illusion. He said/She said laid down their dueling swords and the magical treasure of truth was revealed.
