Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Here comes the Spider-man.
New York City, is not the only place full of webs. For you see, your “friendly neighborhood Spider-man” is not the only one who spins them. You–each of us, every person is spinnin’, spinnin’ webs.
No two webs are the same, each are unique. As we go about our daily lives each day–walking down the road, texting a friend to ‘hang out,’ going to the grocery store to pick up a gallon of milk–we’re spinnin’, spinnin’, spinning webs: family, work, school–each a thread that we weave into our intricate design. Everything is connected in our life, a strand of silk that has become a part of our web.
But as we’re spinnin’, spinnin’ our webs–they are not always so easy to control, are they? Some are too intricate, too many strands which trip us up and tangle us. Some of our webs are too big and we catch too many flies within them, or too small and we catch too few. Some of us are maybe even weaving a destructive web, a web of lies, which wastes silk and becomes too much of a maintenance to control.
All of us, are spinnin’, spinnin’, weaving webs, just like our web-slinging friend; and sometimes, even Spiderman spins webs that are too overwhelming: Aunt May, Mary Jane, college, the Daily Bugle, and of course his nocturnal crime fighting, are many strands for poor Peter Parker to keep track of; and sometimes, he becomes tangled up in them.
It’s easy to spin a web, but to maintain one is a whole nother story. So, as you walk through life, spinin’, spinnin’ your web, try not to overwhelm yourself, do not be afraid to cut a few strings, spin your web, and know that when you find yourself all wrapped up and tied up, that even Spidey gets overwhelmed sometimes–that you’re not the only one, that you’re not alone:
Sling us a web you`re the Spider-man
Sling us a web tonight
`Cause we`re all in the mood for a hero now
And there`s evil-doers to fight
