Sad But Better Off

By Daniella Djiogan

My life is sad

But theirs is sadder

I have all they desire

But they have none of mine

I guess suffering (a hard life) is not one thing I envy

.

They lack the physical desires of this world

I lack its spirituality

Peacefulness is one thing I crave

And one thing they possess more than me

.

I am thankful for what I have

But less thankful than I should be

I don’t deserve them all

So, I plan to someday share with them

.

This life is strange isn’t it?

It gives to some as if it took from another

And it takes from some as if punished

As if their crimes were unforgivable.

.

Yes, it makes us different

Similar in all but difference

Our lives are sad for different reasons

Our fortunes are poles apart

And our sadness reflects a different side of a mirror called life.
