I wrote this sometime last year and posted it as a facebook status-
That is the last time I saw or thought of it.
A friend just sent it to me with the words “Whenever I am down, I read what you wrote and I feel better.”
It really humbled me so here I am archiving it..hoping it works for another soul.
Just because you have never seen their tears, does not mean they do not cry.
All the laughter you hear from them could be a lie.
The friend comforting you might be stifling a sigh-
The stranger walking past you is carrying a cross too.
We are not strong because we don’t break and fall,
We are strong because we cry, fall, crash and burn.
We are faithful because we first doubt,
Happy because we know pain.
We are forgiven only after sinning.
We are phenomenal because amidst all the insanity that is life,
We smile, laugh, fight, weep,conquer and survive.
But above all, WE LIVE
