Walking Stick


By M.B. Meme

How is it
that you’re in,
the reason!

I always fall
whenever I release you,
and think
you pushed me over.

You want
in fact to leave me
and go away.

Minding your gesture
I took it a challenge
to stand by myself,
thought I surely could,
but
I will remember
being with you.
