Stay – michnavs

don’t stay for rainbows and butterflies and stars
stay even for the thunderstorms and the waves and the hurricanes

don’t stay for the smiles and the laugthers and the joys
stay even for the tears and sorrows and tribulations

don’t stay for the love and the care and the understanding
stay even for the indifference and the hate and the outrage

don’t stay for the beauty and the cheerfulness and the charm
stay even for the ugliness and the dejected and the hideous

just stay for whatever whys


Inspired by a recent poem of Gina it hit me the hardest and i can’t get my chest off the line
” stay no matter why”. It is sad that some people choose to be with us or to stay with us only for the good reasons and only for the best that you are. When you hit rock bottom and you falter they simply walk away. That probably is just the reality of life and the reality of human behavior.

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...
