it is the saddest and happiest. yet most constant truth. that everything changes. even what once seemed. so certain. the idea of wrong and right. may be twisted in the hands of time. the solid ground of fact. on which we stand and fall. may wither away or fall apart. when things end. and when they start. it is a curse. for even what we thought we knew. what we felt was ours to keep. can be taken away. in an instant. but it’s also a blessing. for it means that. we can change. 🦋
