Isn't it amazing how song lyrics can describe exactly how you feel? You can listen to a song, and each word aches through your body like a personal message to you. Reminds you that someone understand your confusion, your hurt, your situation.
Isn't it brilliant when unintentionally you smile the biggest smile you've ever smiled. That smile that you thought you would never smile again.
Isn't it ridiculous how a friend can go from being a great friend, to a worst enemy overnight? You have one argument and "BAM"! You hate eachother, you've lost someone that used to make you smile, and now instead makes you mad, upset, empty.
Isn't it strange how we're all human, yet we're all so different? We can look completely different, we can act totally different, we can lead exact oppostie lives. Yet we're all human.
Isn't it upsetting how much war, battle there is on this planet. We lose lives, and in the end, for what? It makes me mad. Someone loses a loved one for a stupid, violent battle that could be a conversation. A conversation in which we could compromise, work out what's best for everyone. People die for their country, not knowing the outcome. Death is a huge thing. Does it not seem possible that we can save all these lives, all this hurt, anger, by coming to a conclusion that will work. Because war - it just seems so ridiculous that that's what people have to go through to win. Can't we all win? Can't we all help eachother. We're all one planet, we should be united as one, not against eachother.
Isn't it horrible how ungrateful, disrespectful some people are. How sick some people are that they find it fun to make someone suffer. Why? It's so so sad. It's so horrible. It's so unfair. It's not right.
There are amazing things in life, there are brilliant things in life, but unfortunately, along with them, are the upsetting things, the horrible things. You can do your bit though. It doesn't have to be much, but just doing a simple job around the house that you wouldn't usually do, it makes someone else's life so much easier. Giving a loved one a hug and just letting them know every now and then, just how much they mean to you. It's not hard, and when you make an action like this, it's brilliant. And you have one more reason to say yourself..."I'm briliant", with a smile.
