Life Is a Bitch...

A common answer among friends when we ask each other how’s life? I say life is certainly a bitch and she sure has a lot of puppies. Each with a color and personality of its own. No one knows which puppy is gonna turn around and nip at you when you least expect it.

Some say life is beautiful. Agreed, for those of you who don’t have to deal with the daily grind of trying to make ends meet or who have nothing to worry about but what to wear to the next high profile page three party, life certainly is beautiful. The ugliness is hidden behind the tinted screen of your car windows which block the view of the child from the slum dying due to hunger.

The myriad hues and colors akin to the reflection of a rainbow in a puddle of water seem meaningful to those freshly in love. Life to ‘em lovers is certainly rosy, holding a promise for a tomorrow full of joy and love.

Then there are some of us living on the borderline of sanity and insanity, cynical about most things, trying to portray a facade of all being hunky dory while loneliness and uncertainty gnaws at our soul softly and steadily, just like the winter creeping in leaving one cold and numb. We laugh and smile ensconced in our glass houses, careful not to let our weaknesses seep through the cracks lest someone notices them. We refuse to bend down to what life throws at us knowing fully well it is going to get harder, tougher and lonelier. But that’s what keeps all of us going. Our attitude to life n her puppies; love ‘em, hate ‘em, kick ’em or pet ‘em, you get only what you think you don’t deserve!
