The Tribulations & Beauty of Life

"Life isn't fair," I heard a man say,
"Life? Not fair?"
"Life is cruel,"
"Life is heartless," I say.

But these difficulties paint our lives,
Makes us more colorful,
More resilient,
Makes us say "I can".

"We're mortal anyway," some might say,
And give up they may,
But that is no reason to give up,
No, no! Being mortal should make things more beautiful,
As we may pass on at any moment.

The great thing about life however,
Is that it is never out of control,
What we do defines us,
How we see reflects us.

Living in a cruel world as a mortal,
Makes our life colorful,
And the world beautiful.
