“Everything fades away... You gotta let it go.”


- Devlin
The letters,
Once written in
Beautiful, swooping
Characters,
Now sit, neglected
In the corner where they
Slowly crumble,
Fall to pieces,
Fade.

Along with them,
Goes the memories
Of when we were happy.
When everything was
Perfect.
If only life could stay that way,
Forever.

But everything has to change.
Just like everything fades,
Fades from memory,
Fades from heart.

Just as everything fades,
Everyone fades.
Even great people fade,
Are forgotten.
At some point in time,
We are all forgotten.

You have to learn to
Let go, let go of the bad
That marks you,
Try again.
Keep trying until
Things stop
Fading.
Try forever.
