While The Rainbow Lasts...

My good friend Bev's friend was missing for few weeks and just 2 weeks ago they found his body...yes he died. Grunty, another wonderful mate of mine was suddenly diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma few days ago - yes he has Cancer. Kaylee my darling friend of just 16yrs old is suffering a heart condition for which she has to go through surgery on the 10th of August - yes she's very anxietic about it. Prachi, my good friend Poo's 1yr old niece has Leigh's disease - yes she's the baby girl I wrote about in many posts. My dearest friend Pankaj's blog-friend Natalya lost her young sweet-heart to a sudden illness - yes just like that. Jeevan my good friend struggles daily with muscular dystrophy - it's a tough life out there. My uncle in NZ is having a terrible time right now - and one of his own sisters is treating him like he's rubbish. And then there are some of us who suffer in silence.

So behind all those smiles, there is alot of pain. Look around you and you'll see alot of people suffering - it's not an easy life for many out there. I sometimes feel totally useless not being able to do something to take away their pain and change their worlds around, just like that. It's not easy to be in their shoes, I admire them for their strength and courage. I have been blogging for 3 years now and some of the people I mentioned above have been my daily visitors here...and above all, we have become good friends now - so that makes them a part of my daily inspiration. And it breaks my heart to see them going through very difficult times...I know that nothing I say to them would change their situations, but I want to let them know that I can feel their pain...and that I can be a shoulder to cry on. I won't be in blogs forever either...no one would. Sadly every good thing must come to an end. Just like how life is. Just like how we may have great health today and it may all be stolen tomorrow. Just like how we'd be laughing and smothering each other with hugs today but one of us may not be around tomorrow. Just like how we may have lots of money today and it may all be gone by next week. Just like how an opportunity missed today may never come back to you in your entire life again. Just like how a rainbow wouldn't last forever either. That's why it's important to say your Hellos, give your Kisses, throw a ton of Hugs to your loved-ones, convey your Apologies when they are due, give Credit where it belongs and Love one another every single day....yes every single day. Just like how you should enjoy the colors of the rainbow while it lasts. Everything goes through change and everything has an end...but one thing remains the same (or should remain the same)...that is your spirit towards changes and chapter-ends. Does your spirit seek foreverness or does it live in the moment? Mine lives in the moment. That way I have lived 'forever' in that moment itself. That's all you get in life anyways.

Bev, Grunty, Kaylee, Poo, Prachi, Pankaj, Natalya, Jeevan and my uncle, please know that you are all in my prayers! Know that you are being thought of every single day. Let's learn to be there for each other, appreciate what we have right now and learn to let go when life's chapters beckon a goodbye. And remember where the rainbow ends, you'll find yet another beginning...for nothing ends without a new beginning. So, all we really have is this very moment. MWAAAACKS! Right now I'm happy forever, cos right now I have you...

Today's song is for all of you who suffer alone yet know how to smile...everytime I listen to this song, I have tears cutting my eyes as my heart melts feeling your pain. James Taylor sang it first but I want to play the Divas version of it today as there's a variety of beautiful voices in it, and I'd like to think of it as all of us friends singing it for each other...

When youre down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
Ill come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Youve got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, aint it good to know that youve got a friend?
People can be so cold.
Theyll hurt you and desert you.
Well theyll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but dont you let them

You just call out my name... ... ...

KAYLEE said...

AWWWWWW YOU made me cry reading this.Great post my friend and thank you for writing it.HUGGGGGGGGGGGGZ!

Helen said...

Great post, Keshi. There have been several people that have said just how HARD 2007 has been. I'm findint it difficult, too. But it is a matter of sharing the pain, sharing love, and keeping the faith that this pain too shall end... Much love, my friend. XXOOXX

Aidan said...

Life is like that, ups and downs, take the good with the bad. Its always good to know we have sympathetic ear out there if we need it.

KAYLEE said...

haha now at least people will know what I am talking about when i tell you i am suffering or in pain.hahahahaha!

KAYLEE said...

AND MAY I SAY I WISH THE BEST FOR THOSE SUFFERING THAT YOU MENTIONED AND ANYONE ELSE THAT IS SUFFERING OUT THERE BUT NOT SAYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AVIANA said...

Sweet great post there deary... I'm sorry about your uncle and all of your dear friends....

You really hit a point about how our health can be robbed tomorrow, a missed opportunity may never return...i've missed so many opportunities and i know it...i'm trying to create new ones...i just hope that my preparation and opportunity meet soon...to create my luck.....

:)

anits said...

Crazy Me said...

They say bad things come in 3's. Good night, it seems you and your friends are being bombarded. (((hugs)))

Menchie said...

Sometimes what people need during difficult times is a sympathetic shoulder to lean on. You provide that keshi, and a lot more.

George said...

You know some of my problems Keshi and I have been able to manage them on my own ... barely at times but I am not dead yet.

When I became diabetic 40 years ago, my family doctor and I were discussing the implications and he said something that I still have not forgotten. He said that wnehever I am feeling sorry for myself about being diabetic and all of the complications it can bring to say to myself ... I used to feel for myself because I had no shoes until I met somebody who had no feet.

I smile most of the time to everybody because it is not their responsibility to carry my burden or let my diseases affect them. So, I am pleasane, nice and smiley almost all of the time ... of course that may paint a flase picture of what is going on inside me.

Now I have 2 diseases that, if left to get out of control, could easily kill me ... and I don't want to let that happen. As you know from reading my blog, there are times when I have come close to giving up but I have not yet.

No matter how bad you are, you will always find somebody in more dire straits so you should consider yourself fortunate that you are not in their shoes

Be well sweetie

KAYLEE said...

Why do i feel lonely all the sudden?

Silvara said...

Ahhh Kesh - you know how special you are and your thoughts and prayers are always loved and appreciated :)

A big HUG to all you mentioned - life is tough and we have to get through the pain somehow, but having people like you in our lives, no matter how small a part it is definitely makes a difference.

So lots of HUGS to you too :)

Keep smiling :)

KAYLEE said...

OMG I LOVE THE PERSPECTIVE GEORGE JUST PUT IT ALL IN!!!!!!!!!

AmitL said...

Hi,Keshi..this was really a touching post,especially since even I can think of so many people who suffer,who suffer in silence,and,who still make the best of what life has to offer for them.In front of them,my troubles are relatively trivial.(Touchwood) It's for this reason that I always pray to God daily for a good day andthank Him in the evening, for another day passed without any problems(Work stress et al are minor things compared to major illnesses,na?). If you see Hindi movies, you might remember the very apt title' Kal Ho Na Ho'.I think,just the fact that you ensure you're a part of these people in trouble,is a relief for them.

Jay said...

UR so sweet Keshi.

Andrew said...

Nice post Keshi.

KAYLEE said...

This post is making me emotional now.

Jim said...

every body goes through pain

those who survive emerge stronger
pain is a part of life
just as dying is

we all gotta go one day
and we leave behind only memories
lets make them pleasant memories

Janice came to my mind right now
and I smiled

I repeat - I smiled
Janice is remembered by all for all the good reasons

Janice never hurt anyone
she was all sugar

she gott angry quite with me often
but all ahe called me was DUMBASS


very unlike Keshi here

Jim said...

Janice was very uncomfortable with the F-word


ahe never ever told me to Fuck off
even after she realized i was not Julia but a dirty old man

Keshi said...

david mcmahon said...

Hi Keshi,

Having been through loss recently, I wish you strength and fortitude.

I have posted something for you on my site. Hope it helps in some small way ....

Cheers

David

KAYLEE said...

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW LOVE YA KESHI!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jim said...

this post is way too heavy

let me tell u about Janice
Janice was naive

tell her the cow jumped over the moon
she wud say Goshh!

she told me she never kissed her dad until after High School
she feared she wud get pregnant

it was easy to fool Janice
i came on as Julia on IT Chat

and i got close to her
i mean real close

she told me stuff that a girl wud tell only her mom

hehehehe

u will find Janice here www.janicemumbai.blogspot.com

thanks to Google and blog
she still lives

i visit her often

Keshi said...

heyy Southy wuts the sigh for? :)

-----------------------------------

ty Dave n HUGGGGGGGZ!

which blog?


-----------------------------------

hehe love u too baby girl Kaylee! :)

imagine if i was ur doc..I'd be fainting even b4 the surgery LOL!


-----------------------------------

Jim I didnt wanna talk abt Janice in this post...cos we r still not sure what really happened to her...

u know I tried finding that out thru many posts here...and u (and many others here) being in Mumbai, turned out to be useless in tracking down what really happened to Janice! Its really no point saying good things abt Janice if u cant really go out there n find out what happened to her. U cud be crying for nuttin...she cud be well and not blogging cos she just doesnt wanna. Did u ever think abt that?



Keshi.

Keshi said...

If I had a friend in Syd and she suddenly stopped blogging, I'd go out there n find out wut happened to her than just spreading rumors abt her death!

Keshi.

kaylee said...

HAHAAHAHAHAAHAHA Keshi i am glad you sint my doc.

Keshi said...

Kaylee Im glad abt that too cos I just cant be a doc..the sight of blood makes me dizzy and I'd end up being the patient pretty quickly LOL!

Keshi.

WP2007 said...

Hi Keshi

Great post!

Thanks for the kind words. :)

My friend's case has developed into a homocide investigation. Our top forensic team has been called into action.

Because of the nature of the investigation, I can no longer post any details.

Hugs

Bev

Jim said...

Janice got married to a Goan boy in US

and died in childbirth in US
was reported to me by an annonymouse blogger

Keshi wants to be believe she is still here
she sure is in spirit

and laffing

Keshi said...

yawwwwwwwwn stale cakes for tea Jim!

u really seem to believe in Anony commentors ha? I feel sorry for ya.

Why dun u find out for urself since u live in Mumbai? Mulund is not too far for u to go to is it?

btw Im not disappointed only with u..but with alot of ppl from Mumbai. Nobody cud help me find out wut happened to Janice. Just nobody!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

btw I even wrote to the Mulund authorities...they said they'll try to find out abt her...but never came bak to me on that. How slack is that.

Keshi.

KAYLEE said...

time for me to sleep its 12:30 am here talk tomorrow!

Diesel said...

Wow, that's quite a list. It's great that you care so deeply.

Kirthi said...

hey Keshi...

it is indeed a very beautiful post and very honest! its painful, at the same time very beautiful to see people who brave life in so many different ways!

and yes, this also made me thank for all the small mercies that i have got!

J said...

That's life...

Hello Kesh.
Muaaaaahhhh Kesh.
Huuuggsss Keshi

:D

AakASH!!! said...

Before i read this post and say anything else. Dont get exasperated at teh discussion on SB da!
We are different people, that means we WILL have different opinions, and for one to be right the other doesnot have to be necessarily wrong.
Hugs! And never run away like that!!!

Keshi said...

ty J aww u MWAH'd me :)


***MWAHHHHHH***

-----------------------------------

Aakash ty!

I know u care and u respect others' opinions w.o. humilating them. I admire ya for that.


**We are different people, that means we WILL have different opinions, and for one to be right the other doesnot have to be necessarily wrong

u r spot on. mebbe u should tell that to South?


I didnt run away...I didnt wanna be treated like that with no respect at all...my opinion being called OUTRAGEOUS and IRRELEVANT. All this cos of a Priynaka that prolly isnt even a friend of Southy? Then what am I to him?

U know I didnt ridicule his opinion abt her. I just said wut I thought abt her. To me she's not beautiful. How does that bother him so much? It even made him ridicule me w.o. sparing a thought abt my feelings.



Keshi.

Iceman said...

May they find a lot of strength within themselves! I pray to God!

Jim said...

Janice lives
i just been talking with another naive mangy


do u believe in re-incarnation?

Keshi said...

Jim I wont believe Janice is dead until I see credible proof.

Keshi.

Jim said...

u r nuts
whether she lives or not is not important

she ceases to exist in flesh and blood for me and for u

Jim said...

even if i had credible proof
i wudnt give it to u


dont want to see u cry

Srijith Unni said...

Hi Keshi,

This is such a nice beautiful post. There is nothing better than giving suffering others, hope, and your prayers. and to add to it, that wonderful song`s lyrics..! Keep it Going..!

With Best Regards,
Srijith.

Keshi said...

Jim nutty listen to me :)

**she ceases to exist in flesh and blood for me and for u

thats wut we need to find out FIRST. U dun even know that n u hv already come to conclusions.

U dun wanna see me cry? I wont believe that after all the humiliating stuff u hv stated abt me b4 hehe.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Srijith and u too!

Jim said...

Although physicians have sought to alleviate pain for centuries, the history of pain research and modern pain treatment begins in the 1800s. The enigma of pain, which Albert Schweitzer called "the most terrible of all the lords of mankind," has yielded slowly to determined investigators and clinicians.

My Lord and my God --

Here I am again, falling down before Your Holy Presence. Again I offer myself and my whole life to You, trying to trust You in everything, trying to trust that, basically, You know what You are doing with Your world and with Your creatures. Lord, I am really wrestling, trying to understand suffering. It almost seems as though the nature of existence is to suffer. Can suffering be a part of Your plan? Is suffering unavoidable? Do You want people to suffer, or do You simply allow suffering? It seems to me that trying to figure out why there is suffering has occupied the thoughts of people throughout the centuries, and perhaps everyone who has ever lived has wrestled with the issue of "Why is there suffering and pain?"

AakASH!!! said...

Keshi dear, sometimes we have to understand the meaning behind words. I am not taking any sides in the argument, and though i agree that the words on teh surface might hurt, I am sure you know thats how Rajbir is. He is direct and to the point, and he uses strong words, because he himself is like that.

You like many others have admired him for this very fact,. so you should be a sport when that same raw directeness is coming to you. I am not saying, that it should not hurt, because even to me it would have. But dont complain of the rain, if you like the rainbow, and dont carry it in your heart. There are too many things that would fight for that space.
I hope you dont see it as a sermon from me, but as words from a friend who wont want to see you carry any baggage that saddens you.

Love.

Keshi said...

ty Jim I'd hv a look of it.


-----------------------------------

Aakash tnxx!

**He is direct and to the point, and he uses strong words, because he himself is like that.

well good for him. But that doesnt do any good for me.


Keshi.

Jim said...

have i missed something?
hurt egos?

Keshi said...

Jim u havent missed a thing..it's the same old thing. (rolling eyes here...).

Keshi.

Jim said...

its silly
there is soo much physical pain in this world

why allow your self to be vulnerable to psychological pain ?


GET RID OF YOUR EGO's guys!

Cuckoo said...

Hmmm.. I have been watching this space for quite sometime. If I don't comment that doesn't mean I am not here. :)

Lots of hurt, fault finding etc is going on in here which I am not liking at all. I know it hurts.. hurts badly..

Keshi, you are a brave girl.. I know as always you are going to resurface again.. out from all that crap.

And my prayers are always with you and your dear ones.
I just commented on David's blog about you.

God Bless you and all of us !!

Keep floating in love !!

Keshi said...

ty Cuckoo u r beautiful HUGGGGGGGGGZ!

The Grunt said...

After having a day where I was almost too weak to open a water bottle, I see this love-filled post with mine and other names of people going through hard times. Keshi, I am filled with gratitude for the tribute you have given us and the prayers that you send. Let me know through my email on my profile page if you'd like a CD of the music that I've made. It would really be my way of saying how grateful I am to you as a friend.

priya said...

Keshi, This post really touched my heart and gratitude for others.

We always say we live for a purpose.. well ther is a reason for birth and its giving and sharing. Here I see it in blogosphere how much we all care about each other. When it can happen far away from any part of the world invisible, why not peace and joy...

Anonymous said...

hey...i have been seeing ur blog...its lovely...gives an insight into the beautiful soul u own....:)

Peter said...

A really great post AGAIN!! You have expressed your feelings (which most of us share) SO WELL! The accompanying music is perfect! You really can FEEL your post!

All the best to you and your friends!

(I don't understand how you have the time to do all this including all your comments! I'm impressed!)

Nora said...

Beautiful post.

For the way you care and write about those who suffer.

For your sweet heart.

For your genuine words.

PS: I live in Syd, and if you suddenly stopped blogging, I'd want to know if you were ok, and would do everything I could to find out... :)

Kavi said...

That was so much from the heart and touching. You are so special !

I learnt that it takes very little to make a big difference in other peoples lives !
We can !

Maybe its a good time to listen to the song - "Don't worry, be happy". A simple song with simple words yet a powerful message.

talj said...

Dear Keshi,

Many thanks for this beautiful post and for thinking of me. Life deals some incredibly cruel blows to so many people every single day and amongst the heartache and pain emerge people like yourself. People willing to step right up and realise there is nothing you can say to change what has happened but you know that and you still stay - you stay so that people like me and so many others know that people to care, even if they have no words.

Thank you for caring Keshi.

With love,

Natalya x

uttara said...

keshi...

its a nice way u portray al this..

HUGZZZZ

N said...

wow! that was really touching. and i cant agree with you more. every day we see great people suffering for no reason..

i hope we could help it, but we sometimes cant..

Jeevan said...

The pleases are like the lines of this song,
to swing with holding the friendly hand,
not think the future,
just warm in the palm.

Beautifully said out from you heart keshi. Actually my good thoughts of humanity grows here. you won’t feel like that, the happiness and love from you through this blog, takes away the suffer. Plenty of Hugssss friend :)

niki yokota said...

vishesh said...

well keshi,the world is one big place..wish we needn't suffer...

today as a part of my skl interact club's project we went to a near by slum....and seriously more people came out because of the chocolates than anything..thats life...we need something sweet,which we can see all the time,but just can't buy it...when it is given we cherish it...

Michelle said...

its almost co incidental that i read this post...i know how u feel keshi...i found out i have asthama few days back...and its very hard fr someone as active as me...

Asha said...

Oh Keshi! Sometimes we don't count our blessings to be happy,healthy compared to some.You are right,be happy with with what you have right now.Who knows about the future,right? I am glad to find a great girl like you!:))
Have a good day my dear girl and smile!

diyadear said...

**a million bear hugs rolled in one**
:D

take care, girl...

i hope ur uncle's doing better since the crisis last time. :)

twistedttruth said...

Keshi, that drove off the remnants of humour from me. Mind wide open. I think I'll apply some of this tonight.

Kent Sweatman said...

I saw your post on Andrew's site and was troubled by what you said. So I visited your blog.

I was moved by your post. At such times in my own life, I have found refuge, peace and even joy in God. Psalm 46:1 says, "God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble."

I am praying for you today.

Alok said...

Keshi ..... I was indeed right .... u have a heart of gold

i havent read a more beautiful post than this ... thank you ... thank you for being there and thank you for writing and sharing

but pray tell me why do u want to delete this space (read it at andrew) ....

Keshi, nothing is life that is permanent except soul, absolutely nothing and its our fallacy to think that there can be something else that we can cling on to ..... beyond the spirit .... nothing is so trasparent and permanent as your spirit ....

If I may give u a suggestion .... (it generally works for me so just ...) take some time off .... if u have to think abt it think so much that u get bored of it ... if u have to watch tv do it so much that u crave to meet real people or just take a small vacation .... or anything that just take u away for a while from the current state and u will feel every vexed feeling is gone .....

take care buddy

Ghost Particle said...

excellent post Keshi, as big as the internet is, we are still a small super family...and we love each other no matter what. Let them cruel at heart be what they are, we know who we are. We are one.

Pri said...

heyy very well written :).such transparent emotions, such lovely thots.hugs to u gal!
its true tht thrs a lot of suffering amidst us secretly wrapped up in smiling faces at times...n we'd never know!
ur post reminds me of ronan keatings "if tomorrow never comes"...one of my fav songs!
such is life!unpredictable!! n noone can beat it at tht!
smiles n hugs
pri...

Ps said...

Keshi: This was very moving.EVERYTHING is so transient.Thats why its so important to not sweat the small stuff, be kind and above all smile.(thats what i truly follow) If we can make someone's day brighter even in a small way, we shpould do it.

The Acid Tongue said...

nothing is permanent. Everything and everyone will be happy.

Yea Right!

Everything is black.there is no hope. If you Find one, stick to it, cuz someone somewhere will be conspiring to steal it from you.

I agree completely with you Keshi. I think some people, myself included, take for granted the relatively easy like we live.

What can we do for those people who's lives are not as easy? I don't know, but living our lives as best as we can is probably a start...?

krystyna said...

Hi Dear Keshi!
Thanks for this post. Your pen describes your thougts from deep of your heart and our thoughts too. Believe me. You can do it.
I am very touched reading your words.
And thanks for this wonderful, thoughtful music and lyric!
Hugss!

RamaG said...

I'm speechless Keshi. You've put it so very well in your post about what friends really mean and I salute you for that.

I can only quote Simon and Garfunkel here...

When youre weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
Im on your side. when times get rough
And friends just cant be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

-Ram.

The catastrophic failure of the Minneapolis Bridge shows of how suddenly life can change without worning.
Life is great but full of pain.
Thanks for this post!
Hugs!

Yikes! Stand back a little further from me will you??

All kidding aside it is so sad to hear of all the misfortune.

Blessed said...

It is true. So many are suffering.
Sometimes I feel bad about feeling so good. It's like it's not fair that I am lucky and so many are in pain and/or suffering in some way.

You are so sweet and loving.

We are all happy to have you caring for us. Lifting us up in your prayers.

Hugs!!!!!!!

U dun even know me b4 this but u came here to comfort me...that MEANS alot to me. whereas that friend who hurt me didnt even bother to drop n see if Im ok.


** "God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble

I agree...God is the only omni-present help we all have. we all hv to carry our burdens alone somehow...and only one person is with us at all times..and thats Him.

tnxx so much Kent for being here and for that beautiful inspiration!


-----------------------------------


ty Alok HUGGGGGGGGZ! And u too...cos u realise the beauty of love n friendship alot more than some others do. That means u too hv a GOLDEN heart Alok.


**, nothing is life that is permanent except soul, absolutely nothing and its our fallacy to think that there can be something else that we can cling on to

true...thats what most humans think...thats there's something else we cud cling on to...but there isnt..this MOMENT is all we've got....


Abt wanting to delete my blog...read my ans just above, to Kent :) well tnxx for reading that and coming here to comfort me Alok. That means alot to me! It really does.

**Everything is black.there is no hope.

if u choose to see everything as black, then everything will be so. I agree there is alot of bad in this world, but there is alot of good too?


**If you Find one, stick to it, cuz someone somewhere will be conspiring to steal it from you.

There is HOPE...HOPE can never be stolen Acid...if u allow someboady to steal it, yes then it will be...so dun let that happen. And if they steal it w.o. ur knowledge, then u can always acquire some new HOPE, cant u? :)

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Janice the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me, Jesus
You've got to help me make a stand
You've just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other way

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things to come

Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you, baby, one more time again, now

Jim that prayer you posted is beautiful, the firebird on suffering, amen.

Keshi, keep the faith, everything happens for a reason and we are here just learning and evolving, the rest is dust in the wind.

//if u choose to see everything as black, then everything will be so. I agree there is alot of bad in this world, but there is alot of good too?

i have always been sayin this and though i hate to reiterate it, it is true. you've got to be a crook, atleast to some extent to achieve your share of happiness.

//u can always acquire some new HOPE, cant u? :)
People are gonna rob you off that too. whaddya think, everybody's looking for something, and they want it. They'l lie cheat,steal to get it.

Moral of the story: Be a crook.

Keshi said...

G'day Acid!

** you've got to be a crook, atleast to some extent to achieve your share of happiness.

aww who says so? But wud u really be HAPPY being a crook?


**Moral of the story: Be a crook.

My moral of the story:

Be who u r no matter who others may be...or else u'll never really be happy.
