it will take a while.
a long while.
but someday it will all make sense
and you’ll understand why it had to happen
the way it happened.
and you might never understand completely,
but for the most part you will.
and on the days
when the part of you that still wonders why
seems a little too loud,
the rest of you will pipe up and make it understand.
because this is how it goes
and this is how healing happens.
