Nothing will ever be the same

This fact lives in the back of my brain

but in the depths of my heart

I'm reaching out for some feeling of comfort

thoughts of the past

I try to hold on

but no matter how hard I try

the past keeps slipping away

like sand through my fingers

I clench my fists

and tighten my grip

desperately needing some form of normalcy

of the life I knew and loved

But things change

People change

No matter how hard I fight it

I'm changing too

I need to come to terms with this reality

if I'm going to fly

and break free from the chains

that once restrained me

I know that

Nothing will ever be the same
