People Say

by Glenn G   Jun 8, 2022

When life kicks you, people say it will get better.
When a dog bites you, people say it will heal.
When you get cut, people say the bleeding will stop.
When you fall, people say you will get up.
When the Sun sits, people say it will light up tomorrow.

They're wrong; since I let you go I have not gotten better, my ache has not healed, my heart won't stop bleeding, I haven't been able to get up, and no light has brightened my days.
