When tragedy or loss strike; grief comes full force after the shock fades, it turns the world upside down, a new universe in which you are scared and alone, one where lies are revealed, truths are sought, feelings broken, hearts shattered, lives and friendships torn by reality.
Grief now makes it appearance at every birthday, every anniversary every holiday, every season ending or beginning.
Your life is now grief, grief for the kids that are no longer little or there, you grieve them growing, you grieve the little moments that once were so tiresome but are now gone, forever. You grieve your past, your failures, your regrets, your wants that went untold or unfound. You grieve what you had but lost and also what you never had but desperately wanted. Life is grief.
