I had my own notion of grief
I thought it was a sad time
That followed the death of someone you love
and you had to push through it
To get to the other side
But I'm learning there is no other side
There is no pushing through
But rather
There is absorption
And grief is not something you complete
But rather you endure
Grief is not a task to finish
and move on,
But an element of yourself-
an alteration of your being
A new way of seeing 
A new definition of self
