Reality of life

 

Dear Diary,


When I take a look at this world, what's happening all over, all across, and all around the world, I see all kinds of people who smile and I see all kinds of people who cry, I see all kinds of people who are happy and I see all kinds of people who are sad, I see all kinds of people who are filled with joy 


and I see all kinds of people who are filled with sorrow. I see all kinds of people who are blessed and I see all kinds of people who are depressed. I see all kinds of people who've given up hope and I see all kinds of people who are still holding on to hope. I see all kinds of people who've given up 


their dreams and I see all kinds of people who are still holding on to their dreams. I see all kinds of people who succeed in life and I see all kinds of people who fail in life. I see athletes win trophies for their endless amount of effort, determination, dedication, devotion, commitment, and discipline, I see actors and actresses who make millions of dollars portray superheroes or all kinds 


of other less powerful people who are just like us, I see doctors who save lives, I see police officers who protect lives, I see firemen who risk their lives, and I see brave men and brave women who've chosen to dedicate part of their lives for the greater good of humankind. And then I wonder, what's become of this world, what's becoming of this world, 


what's yet to become of this world. We idolize fame, we idolize wealth, we idolize abundance, and we idolize achievement, and that's okay, but what we don't do is idolize those who've already done and who do, and who are bound to do great work behind the scenes. We pretend we care when disaster strikes the world in order to gain a few more likes and a few more followers, we pretend to be someone else because we can not accept ourselves for who we truly are,


we post photoshopped pictures of ourselves on the world wide web, because we aren't satisfied with the way we look when we take a look at ourselves in the mirror, and we lie to ourselves because we can not accept the truth. What's become, what's becoming, what's bound to become of us, of this world. We can not allow this virus to defeat us, to take away our humanity, we can not give up on ourselves, we can not give in, and we can not surrender. 


We have to win, we have to prevail, we have to keep our humanity, because it's our humanity that makes us human, it's our humanity that makes us whole.
