Creepers

They walk in silence

And they run in fear

But they can only be heard

When we are willing to hear

 

On a typical day’s quiet stroll

Comes the caress of  gentle winds

When suddenly, they are there

As we take our surroundings in

 

While lying awake at night

Be it hot, pleasant, or icy cold

They slip in through small unsecured spaces

Bringing with them good, bad, new, and old

 

We can use them as we please

To create, enjoy, and build

Yet, we can also completely destroy them

Leaving them for dead in an open field

 

To forget, to remember, to cherish

To keep, or to throw away

Thoughts and memories continuously creep

On every given day

    what a brilliant interpretation of thoughts! you are so right – we have the power to accept or reject them – they don’t need to rule over us…
