Isn't it astonishing
how life can change so abruptly,
and in the most distressing ways?
Instantaneously, our balance is thrown off -
ordinariness is a stranger,
and we begin to question
the stability of our beliefs.
There must be some force
that propels us to keep operating,
some force that reminds us of
a kind friend: hope,
some crazy reasoning behind the
madness of life.
The beautiful part
is that we keep trekking on,
and along the way we learn
that these moments that change us
don't need to be answered here,
not now, not in this life-
they will be answered down the road.
Now we know in part,
soon we will know in full
the reasoning behind the madness.
