Spring cleaning of my mind, no matter what the season
Just needs it sometime, without thought or without reason.
A little bit of soap, perhaps a mop and maybe a broom,
To clean up all the dirt, so I can make some room.
Room for improvement by fixing up the broken gutters,
Different views to replace the old and worn shutters.
New emotions, nothing like a fresh coat of paint,
Polishing the fixtures, shining what's permanent-what remains.
A new outlook on life, by opening windows to let air in,
So my soul and mind are bright, so I can LIVE again.
The new is very exciting, but the old is always true.
And finding something better, sometimes is impossible to do.
I think I'll keep mine looking good, by taking care of what I
have.
Mine looks better since I cleaned it, doesn't look that bad!!

Very good! Could you clean my mind now? I've so much stuff up there I talk to myself - what's that you say? There's another reason for that? Oh, ok......

Welcome!

Hello CG - Welcome to the Forums.... Nice to have you here - I really enjoyed the extended metaphor of this piece... A very nice job indeed....

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.
