From a quote by John Steinbeck

People tell you that it’s going to be hard (true)
and that you won’t sleep for years (not true)
that you won’t know your face in the way that
you once did (maybe)

People tell you that it’s like your heart
is forever outside your body (true)
and that suddenly the world looks different (true)
and that you won’t know your lover like
you once did (true)

People tell you that the time flies (maybe)
and that your body doesn’t feel like your own (not true)
and that you won’t know your heart
like you once did (not true)
