what’s the first song

You can’t shape ponds and dams into intricate patterns.
You can dig out what you want.
Make the pattern into the dirt.
But at the end of the day, you don’t know how much rain will fall… or how much water you need to fill the pond with.
That part is not within our control.
The dirt breaks down when it becomes mud, banks sink… the shape breaks.
People are like ponds.
We can give ourselves this… this shape.
And set out the kind of person we want to be.
We can have these intricate layouts…
Make the patterns in our hearts… or our minds.
But at the end of the day, we won’t know how much rain will fall… or where it comes from.
Whether it will be good rain… bad rain… a storm…
Sometimes our hearts or our minds break down when they become mud… our banks sink.
And our shape?
It breaks.
It’s okay though… because we’re full.
Full of things we didn’t control.
