The randomness of life

Looking back, digging through the chapters of my life,
I could not describe much,
It was not much of a life perhaps,
But I lived through days and nights,
Contemplating, determining, and many thoughts happen to cross my mind,
My journey has just begun,
Although I have been awake for so long,
20 years of my teenage life,
Memories are just slideshows,
Limit is it,
I'm growing up,
I'm learning to be more independent as I go,
You should too, my friend.
Life is not about one thing in particular,
Everything links,
They bond,
A line that ties us forever, unbreakable;
Till the graveyard we go.
Today, I live,
Tomorrow, I live,
The day after and the rest of the coming days,
We never know,
Because we never care,
It is life and what we do is living it to the fullest,
To the extent of satisfaction.
What makes us human in the end,
Is what make us one.

When effort doesn't pay

What happens when you fail to obtain something that you wish for? When you realize the effort you put in does not come back to you fairly. When the long awaited seed does not grow, but eventually fail to manifest. Desperation glooms around, clouding your emotions and finally drive you into a state of despair, leaving you helpless. Frankly, I would be in a much worst state as many others would. However, learning to overcome this failure could just open a new door for yourself.
A door, perhaps not just a pathway; it is the light, the wisdom that you will never obtain from being a winner forever. A sense of dissatisfaction perhaps, due to efforts poured and money spent. Maybe it is too expensive, a price not worth to be paid, but think about it again. Have you not learned from your mistakes for this once, you will never be able to do so the next time.
