I thought being grounded was the way to be,
I think maybe it’s not a good thing, after all.
Groundedness implies roots and roots are connected to something vital,
Roots can rip out, tear, sever,
leaving raw ends reaching for something that is no longer there.
Grasping – no,
For now – it seems much more appealing
to not be grounded, but to be
withdrawn within oneself.
Then, when life flings you
like a rag doll,
you just take it.
Isn’t that better?
Well, just humor me then.
