Treasure Island

lil island Gal

(1989 / khi)

****Sometimes we must****

sometimes we must
get hurt in order
to grow,

we must
fail in order
to know that.

our visions
clear only after
our eyes
are washed
away with tears...

    I agree
    Mistakes makes us learn
    in life...we must feel the pain
    to understand
    the seriosness of love (Report) Reply

    The triumph of happiness is from our pains. From our failures we learned the right things in life, we become stronger to face life's adversaries taking it more as a challenge, and when we come and get over with it, the essence of happiness is being treasured and much appreciated its value..........Thanks!
