should i cut the red thread

169_516490347418_1333_n

a fair few threads keep the band around my leg from falling off,
I know it’s going to break some day soon,
I wonder why I haven’t just cut it off,
maybe I will.
I’ve worn it longer than I’ve needed to,
I’ve worn it tighter to my skin,
the red color is fading,
the frayed ends are knotting up,
the soil I tread through keeps it black,
and I’m the only one who will notice anyway.
