Next to where you stood

I have this flag
It is wet again with the rain
And has a few new holes,
And more tattered threads,
From one more disaster survived.
But it is mine,
It is familiar,
And I think I will keep it for a while.

I have this stake
It is in the ground
(Probably a little more blunted)
Still plunged in the place
Next to where I stand
Next to where you stood
For a little while anyway.
It still works just fine,
It still holds my flag,
It is familiar,
And I think I'll keep it for a while.

These shoes of mine still protect me,
Still take me where they want to go.
They are comfortable, and they took me here
Next to where you stood
Where I now stand
Where I am not leaving
Where I watched you leave.
Where I will be if you wander back.

This patch of land where I still stand --
Where the flag hangs low
Where the stake was plunged --
This patch of land is mine.
It was mine before you stood there,
It is still mine now.
It is familiar,
And I am not going anywhere.

Because this flag is not white.
This stake is not cracked.
These shoes are comfortable.
And I am not going anywhere.

This reminds me of a Tarot card. I think it's the nine of wands or something around there.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

Seriously, I read all of your posts and enjoy them. Don't usually comment because there isn't really much to say. Art isn't really meant to be pulled apart. I enjoy you mind. Thanks for sharing.

I don't mind if you pull it apart. But in your case, perhaps you should just twist it, instead? Thank you, sweetie. Love your blog, too, by the by.

Hold your ground my friend...you are the wiser for the adventure...and the richer for it too...though maybe doesn't seem so right now...

I will just be who I am. It's something I'm learning to do 24/7. And who I am is a guy on this ground with this to offer. Thanks.
