Another new one; this came together very quickly. Possibly categorized as a character study, it's a simple piece about a complex soul.

The Man in the Middle

He’s the man in the middle,
he one in between,
either built like a mountain
or a twig, but he’s lean.

You might overlook him;
e tends to keep out of sight.
He will stand in the shadows,
but can handle the light.

He’s cautious and cunning.
He can battle the best.
He can quiet the mountain,
rive the twig to its nest.

His senses are stunning;
e’s always aware.
No one controls him.
He won’t fall for a dare.

Never question his honor.
Never step on his pride.
Befriend him, defend him,
nd he’ll stand by your side.

He’ll fight for your honor
s well as his own,
ut don’t try to crowd him;
e needs time alone.

He’s not chauvinistic
et plies chivalric art.
He’s the man in the middle;
e’s the one in your heart.

This is wonderful in rhyme, verse, and meaning. Not a word wasted.

Debra, the silenced one is usually the one in the middle...just like the middle child...never standing out or getting all the love, but they grow up to be wise old owls full of knowledge and common sense because they had to fight for what they got. Enjoyed this much!!!

...with wonderful colors of wisdom...your poetic verse describes the likeness of a middle man...given all the right definition.

Seen but not heard. Silence is a skill my friend. Everything passes through him but nothing gets past him. Great rhyme and flow. Peace, Love and Blessings Always,Paul.

How BEAUTIFUL!!! Ahhhh, if there were only any of these middle men left. They are far and between! Do you have the luck to know someone who is like this =)?
