life goes on


that moment years ago
when it all seemed to fall apart.
when you thought everything was slipping
and there was nothing you could do.
it happened, like you knew it would,
and you lived through it.
you're different, you're changed,
you're wiser and more experienced.
life went on.

they walked away,
and all you could do was stare
at their retreating backs.
the pain is greater than the
weight of a thousand oceans, 
and it doesn't recede like the tide 
draws away from the sandy shore.
it's a pain that is lasting, deeper than
anything you've ever experienced.
life goes on. 

hearts will be broken,
people will change, lives will be lost,
walls will be built, offenses will not
be forgiven or forgotten, lives will change
swifter than we think possible with
more lasting effects than we ever 
even considered imagining.
friendships will be broken, memories
will be lost in a sea of information.
and like all other times,
life will go on.

a small piece of writing from a few days ago. happy Wednesday, friends! xx
