This Is Just Life.

By Olawalium | Olawalium | 9 Jan 2022


There is nothing about life without its flip side
What comes to you as plain might be clouded to another
If you show a man a hero another man would show you a tragedy
There is no love without pain and they sometimes go side by side
Life knows how to turn our understanding upside
Because not everything appeared as they first seem
Life is in two folds; good and bad exist alongside each other
Sometimes we are left with no other option than to deal with things
A lot of people tried to run away but there is no escape
You might escape as it were but you've caused a lot of people pain in the end
It's easier to think time would heal every wound but some cuts deeper
Just as it is easier to assume a pretty face has never shed tears
Or a happy heart has never known moments of sadness
You sometimes see someone so rigid and tough, forgetting he used to be soft and tender
We easily draw conclusions forgetting things don't appear as they look sometimes
Indeed, face value is a false value but most people still forget
We all have reasons for being how we are even though some reasons sound unreasonable
I've had people doubt if I've ever experienced pain
All because I choose to stay happy, smile and dance in the rain
We learn more sometimes with our eyes closed and minds open


It's easier for people to assume you have things all easy or easily handed over to you without understanding where you are coming from and the things you have had to deal with. People judge you based on what they can see right now forgetting that they cannot understand the glory if they don't understand the story.

We need to open up our minds and learn to understand things deeply because things don't appear easily as they seem, sometimes. We assume so much thinking a happy smile has never dealt with pain or a pretty face has never shed any tear. You've never been with people in their private moment. If only you understand how they soak their pillows with tears only to come out and still be there for those who need them, maybe then you would understand that some people are fighting daily to stay alive just to make others happy - selfless.

Thank you for your time.
