- What Matters
I pick up the snow globe,
and begin to shake it around.
I look at the sparkly particles,
soaring slowly all over the place.
The particles gently drift back down to the ground.
I turn it over,
and twist the little knob.
The Christmas tune begins to play.
It all looks and sounds so perfect.
Yet it only lasts so long.
Less than a minute,
and it all ends.
I hear silence, and see the particles lying on the ground.
My finger begins to tap on the glass,
and it makes an annoying sound.
Nothing like the pleasant Christmas tune.
I begin to realize the heaviness of the globe,
weighing my hand down greatly.
It is all too much for me to handle,
and as I let go,
the snow globe crashes to the floor.
I am left with shattered pieces of glass,
And a mixture of water and sparkly particles lying on the floor.
It amazes me,
how something that seems so perfect,
could look so broken in a matter of seconds.
