Let’s talk about the fleeting nature of things. People keep saying, I don’t have time for temporary friends or things etc.
That’s like saying you don’t have time for life. Everything in life is temporary, that doesn’t make it less worth while.
Imagine a kid in a playground. Eventually his parents will take him home and he’ll start crying “no I wanna stayyyy 5 more minutessss”. But his parents will ultimately make him leave. It doesn’t mean he never should have gone. He played for a while, then it was time to go.
Temporary people are no different. People are not meant to stay with you forever.
We are all travelers on a journey. A person stays with his companion for as long as their paths agree. Then he is on his way. And you are on yours. Wish your companion farewell and do not blame a traveler for travelling, rather be happy for your companion.
They invited you to do what they could not.
They summoned you to do what they would not.
They captured you, they enslaved you.
They needed you.
They brought you to build the nation.
They promised a home; it was supposedly set in stone.
You had a place but without a face.
They reaped the rewards with no mention of you or yours.
Then they said they want “their” country back.
And your place was gone without a trace.
