Some people get in that place in my life quicker than others, I’m still going to kick you in your head.

Today I thought I lost something,
I used all my resources, that I sometimes feel burdened with to find it, yet to no avail.
It was found, when it needed to be found.
And during that time, I had no control, because I could not find the answer I needed.

Today I thought I had a loss that changed my life,
Because the “norm” was off,
And that’s when you realize how important something is.
