Time passes and the world keeps moving

Moving on without those we’ve lost

We are shattered pieces on the floor

But no one remembers

Life will not wait for our pain

And so, we pick ourselves up and pretend

To those around us, to ourselves

We place on our faces the masks of forgetting

To appear as society expects

While in the silence behind the masks

Shard by bleeding shard, we remake ourselves.
