I walked in to life an empty shell

Filled it with stuff and people and noise

I packed it full of to dos and should

I pushed and pulled

I hiked uphill.

I built my own mountain for myself to scale

Then the load got to heavy

The rocks too steep

And I fell

And the bag broken open

And landslide occurred

And I was left lying in a pile of rubble

So I picked up the pieces of my broken shell

And looked at the rest

And I surfed the rubble only keeping the best

The things I could carry in my own two hands

The rest just didn’t seem to matter

And I walked to a new light

Where the climb was at sea level

Where the sun itself was enough to fuel me

And I walked with a smile


With so much less

Believing in so much more.
