Classic Film


Destiny S. Harris


We act like its expected

But it’s always a surprise

We know it will come

But we are never ready when it does

Life can seem meaningless when who you love is gone

But it’s who you love that makes life mean something

Which is why you can’t leave life alone

It happens to everyone

No one is immune

You can’t avoid loss

It always makes it way to find you

It’s here today and gone tomorrow

You’re here today and gone tomorrow

So why are you living a life filled with ample sorrow

It’s now and only now

But will you ever realize this

Or will you continue to go around and around

No sound, seven pounds, up and down, where are you now

You never stop so you’ll never know

You do things because they say so

You’re not you, you’re them

Your life is only a film
