Isn’t it strange and wonderful how life unfolds differently for us? How we live under the same sky yet see different skies?
Isn’t it strange and wonderful how things can go so well on one side of the planet and so wrong in another? Isn’t it strange and wonderful how similar and different we are? And how every day, we seem to be living in different worlds?
On one side….
It seems cruel that romantic songs and films continue to fill the air even after someone has been broken.
That events are still celebrated even after someone has lost a loved one.
That traffic still flows even after someone has been involved in an accident and a family is grieving a loss.
That birthdays are still celebrated even after a family has been weighed down by grief.
That the world doesn’t take note of how different life unfolds for us. That it doesn’t stop spinning to console those who have been hurt. It seems rather cruel that the world can be changed by some people yet continue to evolve after they exit as if they never existed.
On the other hand….
It is wonderful how we fill each other, how we ignore the differences in our worlds and see it as one, and how we see ourselves in others and feel compelled to lend a hand.Follow @CathyWanjiru8
