without and within*

the storm without
without a doubt
is quite a clout;
the storm within —
a blow to the gut
a hit to the chin.
each could
take you out
but is there
a win-win?
forget sin;
think self-alienation.
be reconciled
to the i-thou
in the eternal now….

*idea from Quote of the Day
by Frederick Buechner.
