Through My Fingers Like Sand.....

Do you ever feel like you are clutching things in the palm of your hand?  That you are gripping them so tightly that your nails are leaving little crescent moon shaped marks in your skin? And you open your fist, only to observe that, like sand, they are slipping through your fingers...and there's nothing there.  And you get tired of the gripping.  The constant hold.  You want to open your hand and have something sit there because it wants to ....not because you are gripping it.  You don't want to have to worry about it falling softly between your fingers and being gone forever.  You want to touch it...caress it... care for it. But, you don't want to have to clutch it out of fear of its loss.  Sometimes, you just get tired of the gripping.
