Grabbing Life

We want to clench onto life.

In our sayings, in our principles, in our lifestyle.

We want it to be something we can grab onto…so tightly.

Something we don’t want to let go of…ever.

So build a life where we never, ever let go.

Of what we get.

But what we hold onto unravels. It breaks down.

It’s the way things go.  It’s the way life works.

We might be lucky however….and…

What we grab might unravel along with our desire to hold on.
