Gravity

by BookGirl

What holds you down?

Love? Success? Happiness? Can you honestly answer?

What causes you to simply let go?

You cannot answer. You've already passed on. You're too far gone.

I can only guess why you left.

You had a lack of gravity, perhaps. And you were pushed away Instead of tied down.

You searched for it all, without a doubt.

Love, Success, Happiness, But it wasn't found.

Gravity applies to all, says Newton.

We are all pulled down to the ground. But not everyone has a reason to stay tethered to the Earth. At least according to you, that is.

Maybe you could have convinced someone to stick around?

Before it was too late, And they too floated away, Due to lack of Gravity.

But over time, many have gone.

We think to ourselves that "It won't be us."

If you wait awhile, you'll begin to see

That eventually We ALL lose our gravity.

@bernardtwindwil I can't say that I know how you feel. I'm not that experienced in the world. I'm still like a young bird, who can't quite take flight yet. (In other words, I'm pretty young. I'm just starting high school.) But all I can say is, don't regret it yet. Yes, it's a shame you waited so long to write. But you still shared stories, and will be remembered for them. You still have some time. Try to make the most of it. Write a few stories. Tell a few tales. Just live life till the clock stops ticking.

@bookgirl I am on my way out the door. That is why I try so hard to recognize and encourage writers. I waited 71 years to start writing. I have told unknown thousands of stories around the campfire or kitchen table. On the Zuni Indian Reservation of New Mexico, I am known as Mellica Molo, American Storyteller. I let that languish while I went for the guts and glory. Don't be late in your writing life. Just be late to your funeral.

@bernardtwindwil Thank you so much for your comment! And, you're welcome for writing this. I didn't honestly think my writing was that spectacular or anything, but apparently you guys all think otherwise! Your comment made me feel really good, like maybe I was meant to do this. Meant to write. Then today was my step-grandmother's funeral, in which I shared a poem. (The First End) And many loved that and told me to keep writing. That I had a gift. It's comments likes yours that make me keep going. Thank you so, so very much.

First thing out of the box you redefine gravity from the universe of physics to the universe of human emotion. Just brilliant. The examples which you give in each verse are complex yet straightforward. I can't think of a more poignant plea for continued existence than this poem. Thank you for writing this.
