Kara Xie // LIVING WITH SORROW

Sorrow is an eagle

clutching your heart,

refusing to let go.

You cannot attack this eagle

or else, its clutch will grow stronger,

entrapping your heart

tighter and forever.

You cannot fight fire with fire.

You must wait.

Wait for this eagle

to grow weak,

to grow forgetful,

to grow old,

to fly away,

and die.

Feel the clutch abate.

Next, a new species

will overtake your heart.

Joy.
