People always say

“Don’t put all of your eggs

In one basket”


And here I am standing

With one basket in my hand

While my other hand holds yours.


I look at my basket,

And I see all my eggs

Spilling onto the ground.


You pick them up,

And help me put them

Into other baskets.


I like only having one basket.

It’s easier to handle.

But you help me juggle more.


I want you to be my only basket.

I don’t need anything else.

But people say not to do that.


I know why they say it.

Because if you lose your one basket

You lose all your eggs.


Losing your only basket

And all your eggs would hurt.

But I’m willing to take that risk.


So be my basket.

I’ll put everything that I’ve got into you


And hopefully you can hold it.
