Still…Just There
Poetry by Marla Deaton

The place where I come from Doesn’t beckon me It’s always just…there Like part of my DNA That never really goes away.

My hometown doesn’t beckon It’s just there. It just waits.

The places where I spent time Have all changed hands in time. But if I went back, I’d find Nothing the same, except the name Which always remains…unchanged.

As for me, it waits for my return. Hoping to see what I’ve become. For others, it’s moved on To bigger and better things. But for me, it’s still just…there Wishing and hoping to see. Trying to find out What’s become of me.
