WILL

AND IN DEATH THERE IS A PREGNANT PAUSE…

LIFE STOPS, IT GESTATES LIKE AN EMBRYO,

SITTING JUST ABOVE YOUR HEART,

WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME

TO REAWAKEN.

WHEN ALL YOUR LIFE IS INVESTED

IN THE DEPARTED…

LIFE HAS NO DIRECTION TO FOLLOW.

GESTATION IS HARD AND LONG…

FRAUGHT WITH THE DANGERS.

IT TOOK THE DANGER AND DOUBLED IT.

LIKE A CESAREAN, LIFE WAS ON THE BRINK,

IT COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY…

WORRIED LOOKS FROM THE KNOWING,

AS THE BUZZER RANG FOR HELP.

LIFE STOPS. AND THE SHOUT: CLEAR!

AND THE STONE IS LIFTED FROM THE HEART,

IT BREAKS FREE… AND BREATHES…

AND LIFE IS NOT THE PAST

IT IS THE PRESENT.

AND IN THE PRESENT, LIFE LIVES…

OBVIOUS REALLY DON’T YOU THINK?

NOT SO OBVIOUS IN THE PROCESS,

YOU HAVE TO FIND LIFE…

AND A REASON FOR IT!

DALE ‘M’   WE WITH ‘J’

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...
