Ideas come and go.

Thoughts fly about.
Imagination plays and flutters in and out.
Some thoughts grasp your heart
making them harder to let go.

But just wait.

There's soon another around the corner, replacing the one that hurt but is fading.

Some light bulbs are best cracked and not replaced.

Others will shine again.

Who's to say which is which?
.and I continue on.

Throw your hands up in the air

and just surrender.
We can't always be strong.
We can't always know what should come next.
We don't always have control.

Don't hold on.
Let go.
Let live.
Live your life.
Let the pieces fall where they may.

I have no hand in this.
Except with which to pick up the pieces.

With and without a thought and a care
.I continue on.

If I were a scent, I'd be a warm, vanilla-y smell.
If I were an object, I'd be a jacket.
If I were a body part, I'd be the vocal chords.
If I were a facial expression, I'd be laughter.
If I were a song, I would be (do you really think I could mush myself into one song? Shewt.)

What would you be?
