not backing down

when’s the last time you heard
‘nothing will ever be the same’
a model axiomatic phrase
if there ever was one

now we are all wondering
when in the hell you’ll be leaving
because as much as we wanted you
to be here in the first place
now we do not

we were all taught not to back down
but now we are at a crossroads
having finally come to understand
you are simply passing through

march two thousand twenty-one
