“We can’t go back to the things as they once were, even if opportunities are there, for we aren’t the same man and the world is different too. In this lifetime we may learn things bitterly. The one we professed to love forever is now loved by another, that the promises made to us were just promises, that kisses can lead to combat, that another man might raise our sons and that our deepest wound is self inflicted. All is not lost. No matter! Inhale and be less aggrieved. See that even in blackness drifting we can be carried peacefully though dark currents, that light breaks from above like sharpened blades cutting through the damnable deep and frees us from our painful watery sleep. Swim into hospitable waters, away from your unfathomable, dark dreams and your sad, winter sea. Watch the stars shine over the eddyless waters, feel your pulsing breath, break the feckless waves and swim back home with a man’s dignity. All shall pass. All shall pass. In loss let us be filled. In fullness let us be emptied. In hatred let us be loved. In love let us give love. In life let us remember. In death let us be remembered.”~Michael Kurcina
