“But in your worst and darkest moments, remember that you have seen another kind of world. Remember that you can reach it whenever you choose to see. Remember that it will be waiting and that’s real, it’s possible — it’s real.” ~ Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
Someday Life is short, it’s oft remarked, Too short, they’ll say, and drift another day, Mile markers passing, gravestones fey, Dreams once held like children dear Last seen along the desert way, Standing on the baked road shoulder, Staring in mute disbelief at the pulling away, Awaiting the change of heart, surely, A regretful glance back, at least— Left, dry-eyed and hopeful, with nothing But to watch the defining lines of intent Merge and melt into the distant liquid lure, The languorous placidity that laps against The morrow and morrow, The eternal someday into which The only one who might ever return for them has disappeared. ~ Quent Cordair 14 May 2020
