Happy Kid

There was this happy kid. A happy kid that finally met the match of a lifetime. And what that happy kid fought was sadness. It was a feeling that was opposite to her lifestyle. It was a feeling so unfamiliar to her. Sadness, for the most part would always be defeated by her smile and laughter. But this time it was different, this time her smile and her laughter was defeated. How so? The burden that of that sadness was too heavy for her to handle. It finally collapsed on her and made her go in to a void of sadness. How can she escape this? How can she cope? She tried and tried with anyway possible to be that happy kid once again but she finally realized she can't go back, she can't be what she used to be. She was tainted and it was permanent.

It took her a long time to realize that she was looking at her situation the wrong way. She realized that she was still that happy kid all along it was just that she was faced with a problem. She finally realized that she was growing up. She finally realized the reality of what life really is. It took her a while to see it all because she just saw one side of the picture. She just saw the beautiful side of it and ignored the ugly side. And when that ugly side resurfaced.. it turned into sadness that she couldn't fully accept just yet.

Life is never really perfect, each and everyone of us has to deal with setbacks. It doesn't make us any less of a person it actually makes us more human.

That's life we just have to take it as it is. :)
