Unfair Reality by Carolyn R. Castillo, IV-A
People come and go. Some would leave and go leaving us without any reasonable explanation. And we cannot really please someone to stay if they really have to go. I know that we get tired becoming hopeful for so long but we must accept the fact that sometimes, something can never be the way we want it. It is we who can completely make our destiny. If we believe that, “Everything happens for a reason”, we will know how meaningful life is. We often expect something but reality doesn’t give us the chance to have it, and then we get hurt. We just have to live life to the fullest without any expectation because no one knows what’s in store for our future. It just comes out unexpectedly and unknowingly.
We cannot survive in our present if we still hold on to the pain of yesterday. We must not refuse to let go of the things that make us sad. We must admit, “No one can bring back the past.” We must start anew now if we don’t want to continue our miserable past. God doesn’t permit trials if we can’t solve them. And remember that life isn’t about being fair; it is about surpassing the unfair reality.
Lola: iho, ako ay isinumpa, isa akong prinsesa, ngunit kung ako’y iyong gagahasain. Babalik ako sa maganda kong anyo at tuluyang mapuputol ang sumpa! ..makaraan ang ilang saglit… Lalaki: ayan, tapos na. bakit hindi ka pa nagpapalit ng anyo? Lola: ilang taon ka na iho? Lalaki: 30 na ho. Lola: iyang tanda mong iyan, naniniwala ka pa sa fairytale?
