life is such


What a life.... and by that I really mean what a life. Cliched as it may sound, we really do have only one life... and it is up to us to make the most of it.

Question is do we? What is it that we keep seeking? Love, peace, happiness, wealth, popularity, power, friends... aaargh! So many things to think about, hardly any that ever satisfies most people at any given time.

Millions of souls - some confused, some clear; some well, some really messed up; some on a trip, some trying to skip; it is this very essence... of humanity... what makes us, what unravels us? For each, there's a reason... similar yet different. When do we begin and when do we stop? So many causes, so many effects.

Some days, one feels like one is on top of the world; some days, one feels like the world is on top of you. Weighed down as we are by our conscious and sub-conscious links with the very world we co-habit, life is such that it keeps bringing up different factors... some you like, some you hate... but life still goes on.

In the short life of humanity, we may have progressed in may ways, regressed in others, but have we made a difference?

The Chances We Take. Or Not.
