Who Ever Said Life Is Fair? - Poem by Lilibeth Sacmar Apat

It all is so disgusting
Learning after years of pain
What you tried so hard to build
With a snap, all would be in vain.

I spent 14 years in school
Learning about life's ideals and goals
Weighing things whether right or wrong
Doing things that I thought were good.

In reality I soon found out
'Sensitivity' is one thing I shouldn't have
'Playing fair' - a word unheard of
'Survival of the fittest' - the game's rule.

Whoever said life is fair
Must have been innocent of what lies ahead
Life is never ever fair
In this corrupt real world.
