the things we think are set in stone
may change before our eyes
each day on earth, we live and learn
and strive to grow more wise
.
sometimes this growth will rock us
till we're shaken to the core
the sun that rose was not the one
that set the night before
.
we think that we have things all straight
and then we're thrown a curve
a bending patch of unknown road
in which we're forced to swerve
.
the totals that we added up
were not the final score
the sun that rose was not the one
that set the night before
.
some changes lead to healing
though it feels like at the time
that all the poems you ever knew
were strangely out of rhyme
.
sometimes, those things, unraveled
come back stronger than before
the sun that rose was not the one
that set the night before
