Everything will be alright

My attitude reformed when I turned 15, I’ve opened myself up to a world full of opportunities and try my best to see everything in its best light. I remember the times when I didn´t and I do not intend to get back to that point. In today’s world, it’s hard to find anything good in something so disturbing. You cannot find magnificence in blood that is on the streets.

You cannot find serenity in a room full of people blaring. It is virtually impossible to find light in the darkness of catastrophe, but it is what happens after that is extraordinary. Strangers hug and cry into each other’s shoulders like they’ve been friends for 10 years. Candles are lit to dowse the darkness that covers the crime scenes. Blossoms are left on the streets, because unconscious flowers are much easier on the eye than lifeless bodies. Songs of sorrow are carried from block to block, representing the cries of purity that have been snatched away by cold-blooded souls with frozen hands and warm guns.

My philosophy now is this: Everything will be all right in the end. If it’s not okay, the end is nowhere in sights.
