excuse me.

experience is a hard teacher. she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.
and after all of the advice that will be handed down your way, you have to make your own mistakes.  you have to try and fail and try and fail and try and try again to truly appreciate when you finally get it right. 
appreciation is a funny thing.   we tend to forget about it and neglect to reflect.  we neglect the fact that nothing and nobody is stagnant…  so when we have a good thing… a good job… a good person.. stability.. love.. friendship.. money… we take for granted that these things wont always be there.  point blank, we get caught up.   and then things change, and shit disappears and people come in and out of your life and one minute ur on cloud MINE and the next you’re wah-ing about how it used to be.  
sometimes tho, its not your fault.   but it never matters…   cuz thats the way life goes and you vow that next time it’ll be different.   and then some people get lost in DUPLICATING what they  had, that they neglect, yet again, to appreciate what they HAVE.
i dont really know what i’m tryin to get at here..  i just know that its summertime.. and for some reason, everyone i know has been going thru the motions of life.   one thing or another has got everyone’s train derailed and this morning’s conversations have been filled with sadness, confusion, angst, and heartbreak.   good people…  genuine people…  are getting less than what they deserve out of different facets of life.   shit’s not fair, but tell me what is.

    “good people… genuine people… are getting less than what they deserve out of different facets of life. ”

    I sat and wondered for days what I did to deserve such punishment from the man above. After losing a kid, you kinda feel like you have been punished for the rest of my life. I thought of things like “What could I have done to save that kid?” and I thought the storm I was going thru was payback for that. But I learned the storm I am in and the reminders that my baby is no longer with me is only a test…I will rise.

    Well written Rach…Love the ending…LOVE HOVA!

    Rock is in da building. Rach you continue to write some great stuff. Where’s the book! I can’t wait.

    Honestly, I question life everyday and why certain things happen to certain people…good people usually. And of course there is no explanation. Which leaves me asking more questions. But despite all the setbacks we manage to press on.

    Maya Angelou said it best in her poem “Still I Rise”.
