"Lives can do amazing things when the odds are against them."

-The village Elder in 'Sight Seeing'

Death is selfishness
It takes what it wants
Doesn’t pay you back
Hordes what other people wish they had
Death is selfishness

If death is selfishness, then selfishness is fear
Fear that you will lose what you share
Fear that what is taken away won’t be given back
Fear of betrayal
Selfishness is fear

If selfishness is fear, then fear is depression
It keeps you locked away
Feeling empty and alone
Away from the people you love
Fear is depression

If fear is depression, depression is death
You chose to cry rather than to laugh
To do nothing rather than to do something
To die rather than to live
Death is selfishness
Selfishness is fear
Fear is depression
Depression is death
Suicide is death
Death is forever

But happiness is everywhere
Happiness does not hide in dark thoughts like its Dark Brothers:
It is out in the open for all to see and to share

And with happiness comes hope
Hope to get out of bed in the morning
To laugh about yesterday
To smile for today
To live for tomorrow
Hope and Happiness are everywhere

At least good things are easy to come by
if you are willing to open your eyes
