WHY — ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
Why must I lose everything I own?
Why must I lose all I have loved
All that I desire, all that I’ve known?
Time is Relentless, dauntless.
Like a fleeting moment, like a speck of dust
In a quick heartbeat, in a fleeting breath
Loss descends like darkness
Like the deep calm of death.
but love Declares a war on loss, on the inevitable,
asserts its arrogance, love shines its sword.
Such valiance is what makes one stand
Without fear or dilemma…
