“As we grow up, we learn that even the one person
that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have
your heart broken probably more than once and it’s harder every time.
You’ll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll blame a new love for things
an old one did. You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and you’ll
eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too
much, and love like you’ve never been hurt because every sixty seconds
you spend upset is a minute
of happiness you’ll never get back.” — AnonymousHave
you ever wondered where you’ll end up ten years down the road if for
every two steps you take forward it only sets you back five more?
There’s trials and tribulations that each person have to face and only
they can figure out why they encounter such rocky paths. For every
situation where you feel like you’re going to fall and scrape your knee
do you hold back and not face it, or do you come out on the other end
with scars as souvenirs. For every battle you’ve encountered,
conquered, and persevered did you enjoy it while it lasted or did you
bad mouth it because it was the hardest thing you ever accomplished?

For
every time fault was thrown your way did you blame yourself or did you
blame the other party? For every mountain you have climbed did you
acclaim all the power or did you say God helped me? Humans contradict
their every movements through pressure to fit in. The only real murder
is rejection of another life. Is is so hard that you have to look a
certain way just to fit in or wear a certain brand just to have a
status in life. Why do we have different classes to justify a citizen?
Is it true that if everyone else is wearing a red shirt and you wear a
yellow one you are not allowed to sit at the same table as them? Is it
so hard for humans to unify theirselves even if one person is mentally
challenged and the other one is a profound genius? Why is it that
humans dismantle diversity? I don’t think that parents teach their kids
to conform to a certain label while growing up.

Why can’t all
humans have the beliefs of a kid. Kids have the innocence to change the
world. Why is it that their innocence is corrupted at such a young age?
If each person believed that anything is possible would we be more
secure with ourselves in order to love our neighboring stranger? Would
another human disown us if we believed as children do? Believing in
things of innocence does not forsake our meaning as adults. Why is it
that humans have so many insecurites? Is this becoming the trend of a
new decade? Why is it so hard to let the one’s we love in? Is it the
insecurities that keeps us out, or is it the only thing we know how to
do in order to protect ourselves? If we let insecurities ruin our
lives what does that say for our kids’ future?
