How Does One Sleep at Night Knowing...?

Hertha enjoys writing about real life experiences. Her imagination and improving analytical skills allows her write about anything.


How does one sleep at night when his wife is laying next to him weeping,

How does one sleep at night while knowing her children are hungry,

How does one sleep at night when she knows that she accused her father of abuse,

How does one sleep at night while knowing that your children do not appreciate you.

So many times we go on with our lives without regret,

We opt to give up easily when people depend on us,

We accuse people intentionally just because they do not do what we asked them to do for us,

We tend to believe that hurting people intentionally will make them strong,

We put people lives at risk just to save ours,

We fight people over a spoon when they are in several battles with Lions,

We manipulate good people forgetting that they might never heal,

We talk and judge the lives of others when we have forgotten about our own.

Dear world, why is life this way?

How does one sleep peacefully at night while they have hurt an innocent soul?

Are they maybe not aware of their actions?

Are they mentally ill or is it what brings them "happiness"?
