Holding It Together

maybe Life is like a giant jigsaw puzzle
with a bazillion pieces
all oddly shaped
and delicately colored

the pieces come to us randomly
one by one
and if we’re lucky
we can line up some edges
or finish a corner
but mostly
we look at each new piece
and wonder
how it fits

because what we don’t have
is the picture on the box

so we grapple
we hypothesize
we guess
but in the end
we make it all hold together
in whatever way
we can

we plug in
our secret dreams
where the pieces refuse to fit
we color in
our deepest desires
in the awkward empty spaces
and we make it all hold together
in whatever way
we can

we just make it all hold together
in whatever way
we can
