Five Minute Friday : Hold

Wait for it…hold on another minute hour day week.  Year.  Hold on and hold this and hold please while you wait and wait and.  Hold on.

Hold in.

Swing higher, and don't let go.  Hold tighter and don't look down.

And here, hold this while I do this do that do something else entirely.

Because I cannot do this and hold this.  I cannot do that and hold on.  I cannot be that and hold the reins.  I cannot be me and hold onto everything else.  And you.


I hold

my breath

and jump



I hold you always in my heart, but I open my hands and let go.
