Get Small

I’m thinking about some of the things that I’ve said, 

so as letters I’m writing form words in your head,

it’s possible that they may not make much sense,

perused here and now in your own present tense.

Thus, their reading can cause you to ask yourself, why?

Then, while searching for answers, to look to the sky,

 the planets, the stars, and the expanse of it all,

so that when you look back, you might find yourself, small.

So small, in fact, that you can stand on each word,

as soft sounds found pleasing resound, and you’ve heard

all the words and the sounds that resound when said 

by those, one supposes, who live in your head.

Consider word rhythms, and what they can do 

in terms simply written, and rhymed just for you. 

Consider rhymes written, with words in between. 

Consider this content like you know what I mean.

Then, as you consider these things in your head, 

perhaps you'll take one more thing yet to be said

into consideration, as our course has been set. 

A plan has been hatched, and a wager is bet. 

Invest yourself now, and the attention you pay, 

to laughter hereafter, then be on your way.
