I've been sitting here this whole time.
Crying, being pathetic and pessimistic.
"That's just the way it goes. Sometimes life takes years from us" You said.
All of a sudden you've opened up my eyes.
"How could I've been so selfish?"
Noc standing in a crowd.
When I look around all I can see is
An innocent person fighting for every breath.
A family forced to move out of the house, becoming homeless.
Children working hard to gain money and help their parents.
Little kids who don't even know what a TOY is !!!
People who don't remember what it feels like to laugh or smile.
"How could I be so selfish?!"
All this time thinking in poor me :(
Abour how my life is going wrong
I got no right to complain
There are people out there in greater need than me
Yeah it's a hard life!
But I'm OKAY!
I have a home, a family who loves me and I have lots of friends.
Yeah I have a hard life!
If I didn't, I wouldn't be who I am today.
If I didn't how can I even recognize the happy moments and appreciate them?!
Yeah I have a hard life!
But in some ways
Everybody DOES.

The very first poem I wrote and that my teacher liked a lot.

He made me see things clearly and thanks to him, that's how I see my life right now.

I love how you started this with a little bit of dialogue, I haven't seen that before, and I really liked it. I loved the meaning behind this piece as well, and the descriptions you used were vivid and powerful! Great job! :)

"Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one."

The last stanza really resonated with me, this is amazing and carries such a crucial and often neglected lesson. We should always strive to be grateful, thank you for sharing this! 5/5

It is my pleasure moderndayEmilyDickinson. Passing through some hard times, we tend to be selfish and think we're the unluckiest ones in the world while at this very moment of our life, all we need to do is open up our eyes and look around us. The world is full of injustice. There are people out there in greater ,need than us. Thanks again for supporting my work

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

TheComet! I love it!^_^ everyone's life is hard in some ways,  but life isn't impossible. It's possible. You're did something to me, it heped me. To be honest, a few mins ago, I was siitting down feeling sorry for myself, when I started reading your poem. And I realize, I've been selfish allweek. I've had a hard life, but there are other who have had a harder life, and also, I woudn't be who I am and I am today, if not for my hard life. Thank you, for sharing this and helping me. ^_^
