Oh well, as the cliche goes, "When it rains, it pours..." True to its meaning, yesterday was another storm for yours truly. The light at the end of the tunnel was indeed elusive. I'm lost, and I can't seem to find my way back. Seeing Nimmy over a cup of ice cream was all that I was hoping for since Monday. I saw Nimmy yesterday, ordered ice cream generously topped with blueberry, kiwi and cherries. What I thought to cure my blues (the ice cream) was ineffective. I almost cried.
During these low-moments in my life, I can't help but write to release these emotions. My friends have their own struggles in life, and I don't want to share into their own concerns. Pardon me if I write a lot of melodramatic entries. Still, thanks to those who put encouraging comments. It feels like someone's listening. Whatever the case may be, I still appreciate the fact that I can write and release.
This morning, I bumped into one of the most powerful poem I read in my entire life. Thoughts like these keeps me going. Let me share this to all of you:
by: Edgar Guest
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you are trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing, you down a bit,
Rest, if you must - but don't you quit!
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometime learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out,
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow -
You might succeed with another blow...
Success is failure turned inside out -
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt -
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when are hardest hit -
It's when things get worse that you mustn't quit!
