Life Goes On

Devastation happens
but life goes on.
The world keeps turning.
We continue to utter
the same daily pleasantries,
regardless of the truth.
“Hello. How are you?”
“I’m fine. Are you good too?”
I keep feeling
like the world will end,
but the birds keep chirping,
the world keeps turning,
the sun’s still burning,
and life goes on
just business as usual.
I thought ‘this is the end’
but my heart keeps beating,
my body keeps moving,
and I’m still breathing.
I can still laugh
and I can still smile
because life goes on.

Prompt: Life Goes On
