Get A Hold On Your Life, Will You?


image source

Get a hold on your life

Open those fingers and let those memories slip by
Let out those thoughts and feelings that hold you back to the past
Frame by frame
Minute by minute
Thought by thought

Let out those tears and fears
That whisper in your heart and your mind and your ear
Each minute of the day and night
Let out the dark, bring in some of the light
Some, at least

Get a hold on your life

Figure out what you want and how you want it
All by your own, all on your own, without a help, without a hand
To not hold another again, to not crave a heart, to nurse your own heart by yourself, in your own quiet way
As you will
As you best can
As no one else can
As only you can

Put on those red lips and your best smile
Let your face and your day shine
At least for the world
For that matters a lot, doesn’t it?
To tide through the day and the night
And what may or may not be real, but surely helps to keep up the pretence
It’s best to do that, isn’t it?

Get a hold on your life

Put on that lovely dress and switch your work mode on
Drown yourself in work, kill your heart and your mind with it
To fill up all the spaces in your head and heart
To leave no room for thoughts and thoughts and more thoughts
No remnants of the past
No shards to pierce and wound

Nothing but that thing called life
That lets you not live it, and lest you not leave it
Be brave…you
You can do it
You can be brave
At least while you put on that face, right?

Who cares what you do buried under your pillow
Hiding under that sheet
Who cares?

You can do this, cant’ you?
You can get a hold on your life, can’t you?

Can you?


No….can’t…. cannot ….
