All of it folds together like a paper airplane,
You live your life unfolding new pieces of paper,
Except the paper is a new light
Guiding you through life.
You have to take the bad things and fold them into place,
You have to accept the intolerable things that you have done
You must fold them away,
You have to fold every year that passes
And unfold a new year
Saying goodbye to the past,
And saying hello to the present.
Every fold you make is a part of your life forever
Except the fold is a decision or memory.
You will remember every fold you make,
Thinking about how it made an impact on your life.
You will teach others how to fold their paper airplanes,
Having them learn from your mistakes.
And when we start to live our final days.
We make the last few folds,
And we fly away,
Like a paper airplane.
