Happiness is only relative
leaving us damaged and broken.
But in those fleeting moments
we get to experience the epitome of life:
both the laughing and the crying
and even just the watching,
as life passes by.
You cannot have the calm waters
without the raging waves.
You cannot have the clear blue skies
without the gray dark clouds.
To get to those magnificent destinations,
you must journey through the pain.
Because that is how life is.
Life can be beautiful, too.
