Sometimes emotions are so overwhelming
I don’t know what to feel
Should I be sad?
Should I be shocked?
Should I be astonished?
We put our faith in our fellow man
But so many times someone betrays that trust
And shatters the image we had built in our head
Then we have to readjust our understanding of reality
Perhaps we become jaded
Perhaps we become angry and frustrated
Perhaps we question the existence of justice and hope
But this state is not a healthy one
Hope is essential
Trust is essential
Faith that goodness exists is essential
Of course the hurt feelings will stay for a while
After all, we are not machines
All we can do is stay positive
Surround ourselves with good friends
And keep doing things that are worthwhile
Everything else is bound to work out
Because there is justice in the world
And even though some people try their best
To obliterate it, they won’t succeed
Justice will prevail
And light will overcome darkness
In the final analysis!
