Forever Bench

This bench I sit upon is never ending
Move over I will every time
Just sit right down, no ponder here
Look out and see what I see…
My view may be different
Not to your liking and maybe a reach
But it’s me and free and created just to be
If you find it uncomfortable, open your eyes
If it feels too outside the box, get out of the coffin
I want you to share my seat on the world
Not take my view from me
Were it not for me, you would not feel superior
So that’s starting somewhere…

Sometimes there are blooms that never flower
Worms not fast enough to escape the swooping beaks
Trees that reach high and never shade
Roads that detour without circling back

Were it not for me, you would not feel superior

Sometimes there are sands not meant for footprints
Bad songs that made sense to someone and bring a smile
Writing that wasn’t yours but still worth reading
People like me who are okay not being you, yet still love you

Were it not for me, you would not feel superior

Sometimes I like chocolate malt over my fries
There are words I can’t pronounce properly
I can’t always remember details of the books I’ve read
Pared pea green and purple because I like it

Were it not for me, you would not feel superior
I’m okay with that part of you
I just want you to be sure you are too…

Artist's Description

I watch people, listen, observe and ponder. Knee jerk opinions are like arrows we shoot at each other in the hope that it hits the mark our personal hurt had intended. I realized that I’m just one of those people who doesn’t dodge them often, like someone who just sits on a bench waiting… I think offering up resistance to the hurt is like holding up the well painted target so they can hit the bulls eye in the center of your heart. I’m gonna continue to move over I think. I realized that by now my bench doesn’t have an end and maybe the view I have is worth the odd masochist or two :)) Good morning x
