There Is Always Something

There is always something. 

There is always something to be unhappy about. 
There is always something that could have gone better. 
There is always something that could be optimized, a more ideal way. 
There is always another option, something else that could be tried. 

There is always something. 

There is always more. 
There is always the next thing. 
There is always newer. 
There is always an upgrade. 

There is always something. 

There is always work to be done. 
There is always a project due.
There is always money to be made. 
There is always a deadline ahead. 
There is always a raise or promotion to be had. 
There is always a prize to be won. 

There is always something. 

There is always a faster mile to run. 
There is always a heavier weight to lift. 
There is always another race. 
There is always more fitness. 

There is always something. 

There is always a larger house. 
There is always a faster car. 
There is always a better phone. 
There is always a nicer vacation. 
There is always finer food. 

There is always something. 

There will not always be long conversations into the night. 
There will not always be lazy mornings around the kitchen table. 
There will not always be the familiar pot of coffee or the light on the porch. 
The chairs will not always be filled. 
The phone calls will not always be answered. 
Familiar disruptions will not always disrupt. 

There is not always someone. 
But there is always something.
