Before and After

(My very first attempt at poetry. Circa 2013.)

Before and After:
The non-specific story of everything and everyone.

Before…

Everything that was
Was,
And everything that wasn’t
Was not.

Everything that was to be
Would be,
And everything that wasn’t to be,
Wouldn’t be.

Life was as they knew it.
Everything made sense.

But After…

Everything that once was
Was no more,
And everything that was not,
Was.
And everything that was to be
Would never be,
And everything that was never meant to be
Was.

Life as they knew it was no more.
Nothing made sense.

And everyone agreed it was
Better that way.
