The Way We Were…
The way we were is no longer but has become the way we are.
The way we are is ever changing, here today gone tomorrow.
Here today and gone tomorrow are the fleeting bits of reality we wish didn’t exist.
Fleeting bits of reality we wish didn’t exist are here to stay.
Here to stay with nowhere to go, we struggle to swim in what is now.
Struggle to swim in what is now is no easy feat when it was so easy to swim in the past.
So easy to swim in the past when waters were familiar, trusted and predicatable.
Waters were familiar, trusted and predictable when the way we were was in the present and not the past.
The way we were was in the present and not the past but the past no longer exists as it went out the door October 2018 and never came back.
October 2018 will never return and neither will you so the way we were has now became the way I am.
