Everybody Knows

THE POT-BELLIED STOVE

Everybody knows

Life changes

Nothing ever stays the same

And no one ever stays

Too long

In this life

Except the pain

Is always here

It never goes away

Just sits in the corner of my heart

Curled up by the pot-bellied stove

Keeping warm

Everything else dies

Everything else goes away

But the hurt lives on

Forever

Old hurts sitting around the stove
