Poetry: Hang It On A String

When what you have
and what you’ve lost
is caught between
the things you
think you want

When it’s all gone
and the dream has passed
and every day
is just another way
to show you what you lack

hang it on a string
let it float to the sky
release it all now
cause
it’s time to shine
it’s time to shine

make it all go
make it all go away
start it a new
let it begin today

Once upon a time
I was full of trust
and I believed the world was good
and fair and just

Yes I remember
a better time
when my heart was young
and full of love
and the world was mine

hang it on a string
let it float to the sky
release it all now
cause
it’s time to shine
it’s time to shine

make it all go
make it all go away
start it a new
let it begin today
It’s a new day
