Sparrow Lines – chester maynes

My psychology says, “I’m a better sparrow”
Ridden adversaries from an open window
Caught a glimpse of a lifeless tomorrow
Set higher hopes to escape from sorrow

Prison pride, fight the tide
Of loveless avenues, worn-out shoes
Sparkle of diamonds, I treasured the most
I fly beyond the great horizon

Shared thoughts of limitless passion
Struggled to escape from sweet temptation
I landed straight on a higher ground
Discreet to analyze stepping-stones and stumbling blocks

Let me connect the broken walls of now and then
Make myself a hero, that’s what I’ll do
To this I’ll fly and spread my wings
To the north, to the south, and east and west

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
