Is there a more obvious truth to life?
Nothing stays, you know it too.
So why get upset when they leave?
You never stayed,
You are not who you used to be,
I am not who I used to be,
So why get upset when the trees shed their leaves?
Why get upset when the serpent sheds its skin?
Why get upset when moments pass?
Nothing ever stays,
people are like the autumn breeze,
Sometimes warm and sometimes cold,
Sometimes happy, sometimes bold,
They may upset, they may not,
They may love you, and they may hate,
Feelings change, people change,
Mindsets change, everything is always moving.
You cannot stand still on a platform that swirls in air,
You cannot hang on to things,
To live, you must fly with it
Like the leaves riding on winter wind,
Join this harmonious grief,
For when one dies another is born,
When leaves fall, others grow,
When one leaves, you have place for another,
This is life.
There is nothing to mourn.
Live for yourself,
For you only have yourself in the end.
