Once in a while I get lost
Once in a while I feel down
Once in a while I feel overwhelmed
Once in a while I clean a closet
Cleaning the closet…a beginning and an end.
A sigh of relief over a job well-done.
Pull everything out
What goes back in
What gets thrown away
You don’t have to keep everything
Some things are a surprise
Some things are just nasty
And you wonder why you kept them in the first place
Cleaning the closet, like cleaning the cobwebs from your mind
Is good for the soul
It has a beginning
And an end
And you can deal with all the crap in the process
What do you keep?
How do you let it go?
Can you really give that up?
Yes, I can
When I get lost, I clean a closet
When I feel down, I clean a closet
When I feel overwhelmed, I clean a closet
When I clean a closet I feel better.
My mind is clear
My heart is free
My thoughts are organized
I’ve gotten rid of the crap
That goes along with living
That gets in the way of living
To make room for life
And all it has to offer
When I feel down, I clean a closet.
