Some emotions are as heavy as a bag of pennies
that you are saving for a time that no longer exists.
You find yourself abruptly sitting and staring into the distance
until you are reminded that you have more important things to do.
Some emotions are as light as helium filled balloons.
You are so excited about the places you’ll go,
you forget to do your chores.
I’ll give you half my pennies
if you give me half of your balloons.
