 Thoughts painted here..please take a walk with me

The Thread

We can let
  It take time
     To grow

In an instant
   We can carelessly
      Let it die

There can be many
   Years we spend
      Chasing it

For some a
    Tragic lifetime
       Spent searching

We have all
    Spent countless nights
        Dreaming of it

And the days
    It hurt us
        Hiding from us

We have spent
    Frightened ones
         Running from it

If we are among
     The lucky
          We find it

We spend our lives
     Giving it away
         Sharing it with others

And in our final days
    Our last hours
        It will be the final thing
            We grasp for......
