I think we all get to that stage where we
realise that a crush is never love,
That people will come and go,
That not everyone will appreciate us,
That with time, everything fades,
That true joy can not be bought,
That happiness depends on one's self,
That no matter how big our problems are,
Some people have it worse.
When we realise that things change;
The weather, goals, friends, dreams...
When we come to realise that,
No matter how much happens within us,
Bigger ones go on around us,
We would begin to unfurl the sail of freedom,
We would begin to understand that life is so
much more than what we eat, drink, where
we call home, what we drive, how we look,
the level of education we acquire...
These are all things that become
meaningless with the end of one's life.
The saddest thing is:
Not many people realise this truth;
until the very end when every wish becomes hopeless...
Ecclesiastes 2: 11
