Fickle ~ 6 word story

How fickle the world can be.

When all have left, not me.

Short term loyalty, oh the irony.

Gone before allowed to fully bloom.

Shrink at slightest sign of challenge.

Me…I run toward the challenge.

Give me a cause, I’ll fight.

Show me your worst, I’ll embrace.

When all have left, not me.

Fickle, this world, it’s a surety.

Cowardly escape, the easy way out.

I can’t be the only one…?

But sometimes…that’s how it feels.

When all have left, I stay.

Not about courage, just my creed.
