Life shouldn’t be in a jar

22 Jun

Many have thought

Of life as a jar

And if we take problems

And convert them to rocks

What would our jar be like

When filled to the top?

Would if be filled with large rocks

From the mountains?

Would it be filled with medium rocks

From closer up stream?

Would there be many pebbles

From when your relationships faltered

And how about that sand

Would it cover the holes?

And this Jar, that is filled..

Would you add water

Till the spaces between

Are simple no more?

Would someone divine, close up the jar

Label it “life”

And leave it at that?

Would that really be life?

So simple and fast.
