Updated on October 4, 2011

Misery is like a storm that strikes hard and is more compounded by knowing that it will surely come.

Life in the storm.
Life in the storm.


How'd you ever find your way when you're lost in a maze.

When the sun doesn't wherever you gaze, how can you realize that you're on the wrong track,

when everyone says there's no turning back.

Is regret only as good when everything's over and done.

Why can't we see things while they're not yet gone.

Why do we have to believe in what only seems to be?

When our hearts and eyes should go together and see.

How can one know what's on top of the mountain,

or describe the taste of the water without drinking in the fountain.

For not everything that comes to our ears is the absolute truth.

The mind and the heart should discern what's inside the fruit.

Can we live without knowing what failure really is?

or die without tasting the bitterness of defeat,

wasn't failure created opposite the elusive success,

that the people may see where in lay the differences.

When do we know the right time to give up and let go,

our hearts says forgive and forget but the mind says No!

If we are to always walk with a burble to carry our life will be full of grief,

our shoulders will be heavy.

Why can't we go on when until we reach the peak?

The spirit should be strong though the flesh is weak,

if we did live the best, the perfect kind of life,

can we ever know the true meaning of strife?

Life may always seem to be full of misery,

but isn't it the sweetest way to taste victory.

How can we ever forget the things that give you pain in your heart.

Can we just forgot and forgive the person who give you pain in the past.

Life must go on but heart can move on.

      "How can we ever forget the things that give you pain in your heart. Can we just forgot and forgive the person who give you pain in the past." - I asked my self these same questions in the past when I was filled with resentment and grudge. A great book by Dale Carnegie called "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" gave me some really useful tips on how I could get back on track. Thanks for sharing this hub Rony. It made me realize even more the value of moving on.
