It’s You That Gives It Meaning

Mother’s milk
To mother dying
Embryo
To baby crying
Did you ever want the whole world?
Remember what
Your Grandma told you?
Remember when
The world could hold you?
It’s still in you
The whole world
& you can only owe
What you think you owe
& you only think you know
What you know
Don’t let them tell you otherwise
There’s a weight
That some must carry
The lucky few
May even bury
Their heart, away
& that’s okay
Another world
So sentimental
And to your eyes
It’s elemental
And elements are all we are
Outside my window
I saw the old world
Parts & whole
Guts & soul

It’s you that gives it meaning
