Alive but not so much

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 22:05 -- wiki645

How easy is to dream of the future, and imagine what your life will be like in 10 to 20 years.

Very excited to create a plan to achieve happiness

But I have run into the realities of life

Life told me that to reach happiness I must first survive the cruelty she is offering me

I came across depression and managed to survive it alone

I came across death. I shed tears begging for that loved one back, but I survive and managed to accept that death is part of nature

I encountered love; love that only offered me lies and violence. At the end I survived and I learned to value myself.

I came across the wrong friends. Those who didn't appreciate my friendship and never will. Those friends that only caused my family’s trust. At last I survived and continue to live.

But how much more do I have to survive in order to achieve happiness? Are you letting out all your anger on me, because I sure do deserve it? Can’t you see I need happiness to feel alive!

I'm living dead

Vida, give me a reason to continue to survive and achieve blissful happiness.
