Something And Nothing

Something And Nothing

There’s always something –
Always something going on;
Always something to prevent us doing what we want;
Always something more important;
Always something more we could do to help;
Always something.

Something is one of those things.
Something on your mind;
Something someone said or didn’t say;
Something else.

Something else is another matter altogether – but we won’t go into that now. Something stopped me;
Something made me think twice.

Something in the way he looked that made me think;
Something in the corner of my eye that made me turn around.
Something happened.

Sometimes something only means one thing –
It’s just something to think about.
Other times it can be a prelude to something more –
I only mentioned it because I thought you should know –
but there’s something else.

But we’re getting back to something else – which as I said is another thing altogether.

Sometimes we have to be aware of something, but mostly it’s nothing.

Nothing makes us feel better than something.
Nothing to worry about;
Nothing to say of any importance;
Nothing made me think there was a problem.
It was nothing – so why worry about it?

Now if it was something….
I’d tell you.
