The sun is shining bright
and people go about their business,
smiling more easily in this fair weather,
but it is all a lie!!
Nothing is as lovely as one would like to pretend.
Sadness hides in the shadows...
A colleague of mine lost her son.
Whatever burdened that child should have dimmed the sun
and let us know he was ailing.
he went quietly...
Full of promises now denied.
Life sucks when things like that happen.
For a child to leave this world,
we must have done something wrong to make it unbearable.
May his bruised soul rest in peace.
This troubles me greatly...
