When you lose what is most precious to you, it leaves you broken.

It destroys who you once were and turns you into a different person.

You no longer feel the same, think the same, trust the same, or live the same way ever again.

No glue, no band-aids can fix it.

Time does not heal it, that is a myth.

So you close your eyes, you wipe away the tears, swallow your pain and move on.

Taking each step more carefully than before always watching for landmines to be sure you are never hurt like that again.

Trust no one, except God, as the greatest of empires were destroyed from within by people they shared blood with.
