We all think we'll live forever. we all think it will never change.
We all think everything is nice and good and that happiness is granted to us by default. We all think bad things happen to other people and never to us.
We are all wrong.
Today I stood by and watched somebody's world shatter.
I felt the core of her existence implode and watched the orbit of her universe shift forever.
I stood by and felt the icy cold shockwave pass trough my soul.
As all the hairs in my neck stood up I was amazed at how utterly useless and powerless i felt.
As debris rained down and the new reality set in I realized in horror how feeble the balance is.
We are all just one step away from the abyss.
Walking the tight rope of joy blindfolded by the arrogance that it will always be this way.
Hug the one close to you and tell them you love them. You never know what the next chime will bring.
