Here lies a bag of stones where once beautiful butterfly wings fluttered
It weighs well over a tonne and is a burden way too heavy to bear
Here is a shadow of a cavity which once was the haven of so much joy and happiness
Survival is not the easiest option when it is but the only choice
As the old adage goes, my dear friend, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
One day, they will all be memories and your smile will be more genuine
Until then, fake it until you make it. And you will surely make it. Fake it.
Until that one sweet day..
