giving it up

as the nursery rhyme goes ‘i have two hands the left and the right…’,

i only have two hands

that could only hold as much

and if i ever want to hold something new

i have to drop something im currently holding

its just a matter of giving up something to obtain something else

like giving up that big paycheck for a more fulfilling job

a good night’s sleep for an engaging all night conversation

security of the status quo for the exhiliration of taking risks

a warm hand to hold for a few minutes of pleasure

no one knows if its worth it

but sometimes giving it up needs to be done

or what ifs will accumulate

piles and piles of it

cluttering one’s life

haunting one’s dreams

drop something,

pick something else.

that’s how it is

that’s how it should be.
