I wrote this poem on the 15th of February this year and posted it on my Instagram as a caption to the photo above.
Haven’t we been swinging together, dear?
Back and forth, back and forth …
Up and down, up and down …
Isn’t that what life is all about, dear?
Till the strings snatched and we fall onto the ground —
Our vessels shattered;
And from dust we return to dust.
