A hunch

When pain falls on you

there’s a state of shock

and like on your first funeral

you can only smile

when strangers asks you

“Are you all right?”

But you cannot speak

and you won’t, for a while.

When your world caves

there’s the desperation

and like your first heartbreak

it seems unfair and defining

no way out of the dump

no wish for flying

you feel completely numb.

When another hope breaks

it seizes the goodness of heart

and like your first disappointment

it hurts worse than hell

but you breath (out),

as you did from the start;

“This too shall pass”

You can tell.
