Litany on Realism in the 21st Century

I have learned that people do not get punished for their wrongs
I have learned that they are poorer than me
I have learned that they will never hold the secret truth of what it means to be happy
I have learned that less is more,
and sometimes it is the losing that is the finding
I have learned that people cannot change what they already know
I have learned that falling in love does not mean that it is right
I have learned that there is a lack of appreciation in this world so heavy that we feel it in the hands of a clock
I now know that loss gives us wings
