POETRY CORNER-(Curated by Grace Robleto)
Hello! Goodbye! How are you? I'm well.
By: Grace Robleto
Hello! Goodbye! How are you? I’m well.
I hope I see you again tomorrow.
I know I won’t, I know you’re leaving, going northward.
I’ll be lucky if I lay eyes on you ever again.
We claim we control our lives, but if we do, we do not do so wholly,
Because your choices can deprive me of you.
What remains at the end of everything?
One resounding “Goodbye?”
Does nothing remain?
Even the seasons do not stay the same.
Even the world grows hotter and colder.
In the back of our minds, we all know it:
Someday, everything we have ever experienced will be no more.
But it cannot be inferred that the same goes for everything we know.
Everything in our direct experience is contingent:
Trees, one another, animals, flowers, songs.
Beyond the change, however, is the Unchanging,
Without which there would be no change.
The constant transformation of all things is not a taking, but a giving.
The heartbeat of the cosmos is steady, though its arms (flung out wide) are not.
Change is a gift, decay is a fitting end, and even ends are beginnings disguised.
There hides a hello in every goodbye.
