Have you ever?

Have you ever learned something
so profound, beautiful, and haunting
that it commandeers your lost soul
and guides you towards a new path?

Have you ever heard something
so tragic, honest, and visceral
that it tears at your fragile heart
and exposes you to new emotions?

Have you ever lost something
so precious, innocent, and pure
that it forces you to contemplate
who you are in this lonely world?

Something that challenges you
to deconstruct your experiences
and change how you understand
moments that have defined you?
