The challenges of life- the only ounce of truth lurking behind a facade of pageantry.
Who is the lucky one, pray tell?
Who has been spared the chilly winds of hardship?
Money cannot buy joy.
Nor can it wipe away the blue canvas of tears.
We each face the darkness of night, alone.
Who accompanies us six feet under?
This life: cruel, unfair, unpredictable, fragile, inflammable, precious, magical and dear.
Let’s not forget this truth, lest we drown in the shallow ponds of indifference:
The challenges of life keep us real.
