Everything and Nothing

Thu, 04/07/2016 - 18:56 -- Aletesi

The thing I cannot live without is me.

If I had to choose one thing that is my only plea.

I hold all my thoughts, goals and dreams;

So long as I have myself all these things can continue to stream.


I might not be able to keep those that I love close,

But I wouldn’t want to impose

And bring them with me wherever I go

Instead I’ll let them flow inside me and they continue to live.


To many, this might seem selfish,

But it could also seem selfless.

Because if I ever had to choose where I who or what to take with me

They would not be able to be free.


But it's okay, 

I'll still be alone,

but I will forever have you all

and that is something that will be inside me
