An Ending: A Poem

Unhappy endings, do they really exist?
Subjective more than anything.
If the journey was beautiful, but one moment painful
Does it make the whole thing unhappy because it ended?
Life isn’t about happiness
Despite what we are told.
Giving of yourself,
Looking out for the interest of others
Sometimes that means things end, just
As much as something should begin.
Love can be true and not last.
It can also be real and flourish.
Unhappy endings are a decision
A feeling of selfishness, taking
For granted everything beautiful and
Focusing on the moment.
You get to choose how the ending is
Going to feel.
Sometimes it just is, nothing more or less
An ending.
