an ode to the end

i have had many conversations, now, today, tomorrow, yesterday, months ago, years ago.

the words parade through my head, through my heart and through my soul.

over and over again, i learn the same lesson. over and over again, i learn new things.

tomorrow is the true beginning to the end.

the last seven weeks.

the last flight back.

the last everything.

i am not ready.

i don’t think i ever could be.

i am ready.

i didn’t think i ever would be.

here’s to Cottey,

to all it has taught me.

here’s to Cottey,

to all that it has given me.

here’s to the world’s longest goodbye and all it brought, both good and bad.

here’s to my family all over the world.

to new beginnings and old ends.

here’s to life.

here’s to it all.
