This too shall pass

/Prompt/

Write a poem that includes the line – ‘This too shall pass’

Picking moments from my jar of memories,
I recreate a world
where people appear from words
And music fills the air of melancholy
But the bubble bursts.
Breaking my reverie

The candle which once symbolised hope,
Falls, hurting my limbs
The scars bleed
Rendering me weak in my knees
Reality comes crashing down
The ground shakes under my feet
I wish someone would tell me,
This too shall pass…
