For Better or Worse

by Melech Bialo

I don’t wanna talk about it.

I don’t wanna talk about how things can always be worse. Things can also be better.

I don’t wanna talk about being positive all the time, brushing aside the metaphorical strand of hair that may represent the challenges that are constantly in my face.

I don’t wanna talk about the same old same old; going over the same scenarios that comprise my day to day.

I don’t wanna talk about the overused clichés that dominate our very different, yet uncannily similar lives.

I don’t wanna talk about my matziv or how life has led me to where I am.

I don’t wanna talk about what I do for a living just to have personal biases cloud how I am viewed or make a parnasa.

I don’t wanna talk about politics all the damn time.

I don’t wanna talk about being an adult.

But enough about me, I don’t wanna talk about it.
