The World Doesn’t End

(May 2015)

The world doesn’t end

when tragedy strikes.

Yes, it’s broken, beaten, bruised,

and cannot be restored

to the way it once was.

We feel the pain of things lost,

things we won’t even realize

until later.

But

the world

doesn’t end

when tragedy strikes.

We are resilient, flexible,

we will remember who we were

while we acclimatize to what

we have become.

Just because the landscape

around us is different

doesn’t mean that it isn’t

beautiful

in its own way.

It is fresh, and exciting,

full of new discoveries

and new lessons.

We will have to change

but if we allow that change

to happen

we will transform

into something

amazing.
