Beautiful Lies

They say that death is a painful truth and life is a beautiful lie. Life itself is a play on words. People tell me that it has so many promises and fullfiments...........but they all lie. Life is nothing to be messed with. Now i understand why people look forward to death, whether it be peaceful, or unfathomable. They look for that one day when they can finally be at peace from all the hardships that life serves them. You have to keep running. Fighting.......every single day. Because if you stop to rest, just once, life knocks you down, and just keeps trampling you. It'll rip your heart out and steal your soul. Leave you without breath, and leave you with nothing else to fight for. Yes........i understand now. For life is harder, but death, is peaceful.
