Everybody Knows

That most likely their parents will die before them,

That war will be born and starve the children born before it,

That one spouse will survive the other,

That some good people will bury their beloved daughter or son,

That life’s hard edges will open bloodlines easy.

Most everybody knows.

But how do you live these moments without dying?

The answer of course:

Ultimately, you don’t.
