Like a sloth hanging onto a tree

Like a person standing on the subway

Like a kid going down a fireman’s pole

Like the customer service person says over the phone

Like standing on a boat in a stormy sea

Like the quote you read on tumblr said

Like a kid holding that $3 balloon

Like I keep telling myself

“Hang on”

To the good,

To what matters

To the life you want

To who you want to be

To hope

To whatever you want to hold on to.

Hang on.
