Go {31 Days of Five-Minute Free Writes}

No, stay, I say. Don’t go.

It never stops, the going, going, going.
It’s the natural leaning of life to go.
It’s what we end up doing if we don’t make a choice otherwise.

Let’s be different, you and me.
Let’s linger, remain.
Let’s cherish here and now, just the two of us.
Let’s stick around this little town and call it home.
Let’s sit on the front porch and talk and laugh and stay.

We’ll see others go out and about, always hurried, ever busy. Let’s stay in.
We’ll see couples go their separate ways. Let’s stay together.
We’ll see dear ones go from earthly life to heavenly. And even though we’ll miss them, let’s stay behind as long as we can.

No, stay, I say. Don’t go.

This post is part of 31 Days of Five-Minute Free Writes, an exercise in writing a timed, prompted post every day during the month of October. For me, it's a challenge to move beyond prideful perfectionism, to write more freely, and to share more openly.
