What Do You Do With Life's Odds And Ends?
One Step At A Time
In life we deal with living
Each day there are little reminders of what we have done
Where we have gone
Over time these little reminders get to pile up
Then we have a box of things
I am not sure what to do with the box ?
Growing up my mother had a junk draw
Those things you might need some day but not now
Life's in limbo
I watch given as a gift
Two wallets also gifts
Extra shoe laces
All sizes of batteries collected over time
Push pins to paper clips
Even the change can add up
Tucked in a draw
Way back in a jar
Old jewelry from a relative
How many pens and pencils does one person need ?
Old phone charges and electrical tape, screws and nail clippers
Lots of sentemental objects pulled out on occasion
What purpose do these items serve ?
Could they put to better use ?
Are they a small rememberance of life's most precious moments
Are they clutter ?
To be given away or thrown away
If you come across any suggestions please let me know ?
As I look at each item one by one
Tucking it back in the same spot
Feeling good for that split second
Then the thought quickly fades
Like a flame that was burning bright
Now smothered by day to day life
