1001 Balloons

Ideas are balloons which gives form to life.

Keeping one afloat,

like 1001 helium balloons in your hands.

 

Defying buoyancy, defying gravity,

Every new experience, new friend made,

balloons are added into life.

 

Every minute spent listening to others,

Watching what others do,

More balloons are added into life.

 

The little ones, the large ones,

they all make you float higher.

 

Sometimes the biggest and brightest balloons come with

glass shards,

piercing needles,

or a flock of crows.

 

You let go

 

everything

 

to get that big, bright balloon,

 

 

only to miss it.

 

Or blow it up.

 

 

You fall, as gravity takes over. . .

 

 

 

Only to collect more balloons on your way up again.
