Are We Ever Prepared?

Writing With An Open Heart

Are we ever prepared for the masks?
That fall off people’s faces when least expected.

Are we ever prepared to face the things that haunt us?
To mourn the pieces of ourselves that will never return,

And then to openly embrace them.

Are we ever prepared for our lives to fall apart?
To end up in places we never imagined we’d be.

Are we ever prepared to move forward?
Even it means walking alone.

Are we ever prepared to keep reminding ourselves of the lessons we’ve learned?
To have enough faith to keep starting over,

Andtoleave some spacefor unexpected strength to come through.

  1. In my opinion, no. We are not. We can’t be. No matter how much we understand the situation, when our lives are thrown off-balance we are bound to face upheaval and heavy emotions. But we get through as best we can and keep on keeping on for ourselves and our loved ones.
