I got the title from one of Kelly Clarkson’s song.
Recently there have been many sad events happening amongst my friends and from time to time these things happen but how long will it take for us to remember how vulnerable and fragile life actually is before we carry on with our lives as usual again,moving on?
I was at my college’s music club meeting that day and a senior was performing this song with so much effort and soul,it made me tear up.
Because the song was so appropriate, as one of our close friends had lost someone very dear to her.By the way,the song selection was a total coincidence.
My friend lost a part of her life and childhood,and a family lost a father,a husband, a brother and an uncle.He was ill,and he was quite young.
And just yesterday,my boy lost his cousin,also due to sickness,he was still in college.
Though i do not know these people that passed,the way their presence affected their close ones who are close to others,its really at large.
The sadness kicks in as long as you have a heart.The solemnness spreads like wildfire and before long,it will fade,and people will move on.
What im trying to say is that,life is so so petty, as how William Shakespear said in his poem Life’s Brief Candle,
