"Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” — Taylor Swift

holding on to nothing
is like holding on to smoke

keeping up with nothing
is like running a race against time

fighting with nothing
is like fighting with someone who doesn’t exist

is like an empty space
you never knew was empty

you don’t miss it
but you need it

you just don’t know you do

Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.

This is a good poem. I really love the part that says holding onto nothing is like holding on to smoke.  5 stars :)

rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, & accepted by idiots.

it kinda seems like a sequal to the poem you wrote 'nothing' keep up the great work your really good at writing.
