Life Is Never Fair

What do you do when you know life is never fair, and will never be fair?

Murderer gets away after murdering someone innocent, and the police tells the family of the victim that, life is never fair.

Someone incapable is elected as a country leader, and the politicians tell you, life is never fair.

Someone who is innocent is convicted to murder and imprisonment of 20 years because of the flaws in the justice system, and you tell him, life is never fair.

Your dog who’s been with you for 10 years dies in a car accident, and your friends tell you, life is never fair.

You’ve been longing for a child for 12 years but you know you will never have one, and someone tells you, life is never fair.

You have a pretty face but you are handicapped, and everyone says to you, life IS fair as the creator gave you some but took away some.

You have a loving husband and a happy marriage but it only lasts 5 years, and all of them say, life IS fair because you have your fair share.

You have 3 beautiful children, a good husband and are young and diagnosed with terminal disease, and doctor tells you, life IS fair.

What do you do?

All of us should stop complaining?

Shall we also stop living the life as want it since life will never be fair? Or life will always be fair?

Life is so unpredictable. So, shall we stop hoping or looking forward to the future?

So, when we are happy or dying, we shall stop being grateful or complaining.

Life is never fair. Or, life is always fair. You win some, you lose some. This is life.

P.S.: If someone were to tell me that life is never fair or this is life when my brother-in-law passed away many years ago, I would have slapped his/her face. Say that (this is life/life is never fair) to his then 3 year-old daughter! Things don’t happen to you, of course you can take a back seat and say that. I’m sorry, I’m just ranting. Too many of unhappy news lately, people around me keep throwing bad news at me. I am so scared and worried, will it be me soon?

I will never reach the top,
I will never succeed in anything,
I will never hope,
I will never fight,
if you always tell me,
that this is life, it is never fair.

Perhaps, I will be contented,
that this is life, it is never fair.

Don’t blame me,
for not reaching the top,
for not succeeding in something,
for never hoping,
for giving up.
That is because, you told me,
that this is life, it is never fair.

  1. Choi Choi Choi! *Touch Wood*…What I can say is that, we can’t predict life. When things went unexpectedly..we’ll usually blame that, “why is my life so unfair”.
    Don’t feel bad or what…just cherish your life and live happily ba. Do console the same thing to me when I start to talk some negative stuffs ^_^

      I won’t ask the “WHY” and I don’t blame “why my life is so unfair”, but I don’t like people telling me that “this is life”. What do you expect me to do then? Accept everything and die now?
      I also won’t console people using the same thing that “this is life”. I’ll only tell you to continue hoping and wishing, because when you stop wishing and hoping, basically everything also won’t happen lor.
      For someone who don’t believe in fate (or fortune telling), “this is life” is unacceptable. Everything is your own doings lor, you can’t just shrug and say “this is life”.
      I’m ok lah, just really don’t like people saying “this is life, nothing is fair”. Then don’t go and vote lor, don’t go “duduk bantah” lor, this is life what, it is never fair. :P
      I’ll make sure I don’t teach my child (if I have) THAT in the future.

  2. Okay, this one time, this guy asked me to meet him for dinner. When I got there that night, he was there kissing some other girl and I mean with the tongue. He got hit by a truck the next week. I think that was pretty fairl.
