All The Little Things

Don’t let the little things get to you.

Don’t let the little things drag you down.

Don’t let the little things close to you.

They have ways of figuring out,

how to burrow under your skin

and worm their way around,

lay their eggs and multiply.

You’re just a breeding ground ,

now,

for all the little things.

 

They’re gonna tie you up.

They’re gonna bind your hands.

They’re gonna steal your face.

You’ve got to understand

that all of these little things

work in contingency.

Turn you against yourself;

you’re your own enemy,

now,

for all the little things.

 

Don’t think for one minute,

“I’m okay. It’s just a few.”

By the time you notice them,

they’re crawling all over you.

Soon, it seems alright

to just sit back and let things slide.

“Don’t sweat the little things.”

comes from the mind of the compromised.

 

All of these little things,

more problem than human, now.

Interface with escape.

Parasite, zombie, child.

You didn’t know it was happening.

You didn’t want to see.

You were losing control,

giving up your autonomy.

One problem get in.

One little demon parade.

One bad day,

is all it can take.

 

But you have one chance,

one saving grace;

you’re bigger than

all of those little things.

I wish you would act like it.

Don’t let them bring you down.

Don’t let them burrow in.

Don’t be a breeding ground,

now,

for all the little things.
