“Episodes of distress” – Kevin Davis (Culled from Lucy’s Works)

I’m fat,

I’m big,

I’m huge,

I’m dark,

I’m lean,

I’m skinny,

I’m subtle too,

terms of comparison

seems irrational

Earth is diverse

ranges in color,

creed,

ethnic,

and race.

We distinguish ourselves

as an outcome of

minute peculiar change.

But end up

Emphasizing condescension

on all antonyms.

Did you ever ponder

the implication of

Body shaming?

Offensive isn’t it?

If being us is similar

then,

reason for existence is

brought

for a cause!

I have fantasy

I do want to live

happily

Cover me with colors

and

look beautiful

But pretend not to

Plead you

Love, laugh and live.

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...
