There’s so much that makes me cry,
but there’s also so much that makes me laugh.
We are bodies of wonder
that have the power to hold so much goodness
we get sidetracked by life
and the several obstacles it hurls our way.
But when you think about how
they come your way because you can overcome them
and learn from them,
then things don’t seem so hopeless anymore.
Though this doesn’t work every single time,
there are times where it manages to fill me hope;
a hope which I then wish to fuel the world with.
I believe that if I just manage
to make even one person’s world better
and more bearable to live in,
then I’ll consider my time spent well worth it
here on this beloved mother ship Earth.
