“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


A back door was left open wide,
I think it's all I got.
I'll take it, try to make it last
And give this one more shot.
I step into another world
where magic becomes real.
And I realize that happiness
is not something you feel.
Something that just happens or
a gift that you can take.
It's what you do with life, it's a
decision that you make.

Joy is stronger than happiness.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

yes! its all up to the individual the way they live their life. you can still have joy in suffering, and you may not be happy about the obstacles that appear in front of you, but when it comes down to the basics, its up to you whether or not you keep a good attitude during trials:P love it jade, keep it up!
