Her arms are so long that they touch the ground
Her arms are so long that they touch the ground and get in her way
Her arms are so long that she is constantly tripping over them
Her arms are so long that she can get no where that she wants to go
Her arms are so long that they wind around her and tie her up
Her arms are so long that they now make like snakes and become her biggest fears
Her arms are so long because she trained them to grow as such-
This is exactly what happens when you reach for things outside of yourself.
