Crying out in an I Don’t Care World.
The answer is silence. Crickets…
It doesn’t pay attention; life continues.
Understand that. Know it.
Try not to feel hurt by it.
Keep moving… one foot in front of the other.
Strength can come again. Just let it.
Don’t let the indifference of life determine if you’ll accept it.
Keep speaking despite the obvious disability of existence.
The beauty comes when you hear the truth you need.
In reality, life is not the teacher.
But you must be a willing student.
