I was on my way home from my first orientation class when an old school friend whom i haven’t met since years sent me a text message. It was really touchy and I couldn’t help myself but smile and thank Almighty for this life. For a moment, I absolutely forgot the obstacles blocking my way, the ones i lost, the stuff I was complaining about and all other negative thoughts that frequently stick to my mind like those unwanted and uninvited guests that I’m quite sure you all must have experienced. Although i know that these ‘guests’ would conquer my territory soon, but this message was sort of a stress-buster and an eye-opener for me, and I am sharing it with you all..
Sometimes in life we feel so blue,
but someone somewhere is happy for you!
Somewhere far at the border when a soldier sleeps,
missing his loved ones he silently weeps..
Somewhere a mother painfully sighs,
‘coz her newborn baby didn’t open her eyes..
Somewhere a poor dad silently cries,
as he sees his son begging for a bowl of rice..
Somewhere in an orphanage a little girl is sad,
when she misses her family. Her mom, her dad..
So at times, a reason to smile, you may not have any;
Just say to yourself that you are happier than many..!
‘Coz life is beautiful, and its not always blue,
Someone somewhere is not as happy as you..!
