LIFE IS SHORT

they say it take a minute to find a special person,

an hour to appreciate them.

a day to love them,

but then an entire life to forget them.

THIS HAPPENS WITH EVERY INDIVIDUAL, THEY FIND A REALLY GOOD FRIEND AND THEN, WHEN ITS TIME FOR THEM TO LEAVE, YOU FALL DEPRESSED ALONG TIME THINKING YOU’LL EVENTUALLY GET OVER IT, BUT ITS NOT TRUE, “LOVE, NOT TIME, HEALS ALL THE WOUNDS”… MY GRANDMA TOLD ME THAT WHEN I LOST MY BEST FRIEND JEN, AND TOLD ME TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER FRIEND WHO MIGHT SEEM THE SAME LIKE THE ONE YOU LOVED. FROM THAT DAY I THOUGHT OF DEPRESSION AS A ROLL TOILET PAPER, IT LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT WORK FOR A LONG PERIOD, BUT IT DOESN’T.
