I'd like to believe life is not unfair.... because I cannot bare to look everywhere and find nothing but rushing air...

I'd like to believe life is not unfair...

Desolate primate looking away...

I'd like to believe life is not unfair...

I found you here profound and disavowed..
Blinding... fantasizing of smiling..

I'd like to believe life is not unfair...

Finally lifelessly happily...

I'd like to believe life is not unfair...

Found solid ground but no way to expound this heavily endowed memory...

I'd like to believe life is not unfair but cruel....

    I believe that so much is unknown to us - we have to make the best with what life offers us.

    Sometimes life is what you make it, doing our best will help but most of us will have trials temptations, health problems etc, Its how we react to them can make the difference. I will tell you this, being a senior is the hardest part of life when the body crumbles ! Health is wealth ! To grow gracefully one day at a time !
