They say sometimes you meet people for a season, a reason, or a lifetime.
I’m a stark individualist, though everyone I meet has influenced me,
Whether it be positively or negatively.
I used to think being self-contained and uninfluenced by people made me strong,
Now I see that I learn who I am through other people,
And other people see their own reflection in me.
Everything in life is impermanent, even love,
Don’t believe the fairytale of a happily ever after.
Love may last days, weeks, months, or till death do us part.
