This loss feels kind of hollow,
This pain feels kind of numb.
Wishing it away feels as bad as wanting it to stay.
Tenacity and resilience are not things that can be taught. Well, at least they aren’t things that can be taught in classrooms and schools. Life teaches you those things. People you just happen upon coupled with a series of unforeseen circumstances teaches you those things. And, you either become one of those people who learn them or get crushed by them. Interestingly enough, you do not get to choose which of these you’d prefer. Rather, you wait, live, survive, and hang onto anything around you. Time, when it’s good and ready, hands you your final grade. At this, time, it is yours to keep.
I know I shouldn’t be upset because people are allowed to have their private thoughts, but I am Latin, I can feel whatever I want!
