Yep, I definitely wrote this one about dipping my toe into Mastodon given all the *gestures at madness* at Twitter. But it also works for the new year, so…
It’s not that I’m afraid of change.
Change as growth, change as a delightful surprise, change as a leap into a wondrous unknown – no, how could I fear those?
It’s change as loss.
And it isn’t fear.
To know that tomorrow, something loved, someone cherished, a steady truth that brought peace will vanish
Only to be replaced by something new, someone absent, a starting over,
That isn’t fear.
I loved my little broken world.
I’ll love the new one too.
I just didn’t want to say goodbye.
