It's almost funny how fast
emotions can change.
From carefree to gentle,
like a mother finding a cut
on her child's knee.
From furious to apologetic,
like two people realizing their argument
isn't worth their friendship.
From respectful to horrified,
like a little girl learning a truth
about her most beloved idol.
From curious to shocked,
like a teenage boy learning the truth
to a question he's been asking for years.
From restrained to hysterical,
like a father who's found out his sister died
and is now alone for the first time all day.
From humorous to foreboding,
like your favorite book making a joke
at just the wrong time.
So yes, it's funny how fast
emotions can change,
but if you don't pay attention,
the person that belongs to them
may change as well.
