it’s heavy, all this being.

i’m not as clever
as he,

not as mighty
as she..

but every bit

as we.

guess i’ll never reek
of rich like he

and i’ll never grow
poor with

nor will i be pretty
like she,

nor should i really
care to be

in truth, it’s not so
bad being me

just wish sometimes
i could let someone
else lift me

it’s heavy, all
this being.

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...
