Forever

They said the bad time was forever,

As if the universe had no end.

But I heard the times were changing,

And the earth was sinking in.

They said I’d never feel the sun,

As if the sun weren’t drawing near.

But I felt the light change,

And the darkness disappear.

They said I’d never be normal,

As if normal was something real.

But I heard the storm was absurdly beautiful,

And beauty I could feel.

They said there was no such thing as miracles,

As if the earth just up and appeared;

But I heard we were formed of the dust,

And his reflection we mirrored.
