Quite The Thing, Staying | 11.16.20
I think the hardest thing for humans to do, is to stay. We are wandering creatures, I believe this, and staying is not in our nature. Built to explore, to float like feather across this place, to land on the laps of many, changing each others lives as we go. Some, we find eventually, are worth the stopping for, worth the stillness, worth staying. We stay for family, we stay for friends, we stay for lovers, and those who take pieces of our hearts with them. We stay because they are worth the staying, and I think somewhere along the way we start to realize that We are worth the staying for, as well. We are worth that terrifying prospect of slowing down and instead of skimming more surfaces, diving deep down into the depths, into the places where light struggles to reach.
Spin around to me
and look up into my eyes.
I am here to stay.
