Written by Jacob Ibrag

I’ve seen the end and the devastation and yet, I haven’t

felt it. It isn’t the same, seeing something unfold and being in the

actual inception. Even though I know what words you’ll last speak to me, I

still want to feel that crushing defeat. And it looks like our kid is going to hate

us. But just like everything, it’ll dissipate as the months will turn into years. I’ll

walk her down the aisle and you’ll smile because somehow in the madness

of our universe, we made it all happen. I’ve seen the end, and I

think I’m ready to experience the beginning.

    I’ve been curious for a very long time on how you get your posts to renew in the WP reader? Is there a box to check somewhere in the system? Like, this poem was posted 35 minutes ago, but then again 3 minutes ago. Curious and interesting.
