It Had To Be

No one knew,
So no one could help.
No one saw it,
So no one could save.
It was just one of those things
That had to happen.
It was meant to be.
It was inevitable.
It could not be alleviated.
It was meant to be of this world.
A thing we could not stop.
And as of now… cannot ever erase.
It was just one of those things.
It had to be.
No one knew,
But no one cared.
It had to be.
