Swan Song: A Fair Share of Life

30 1 0

“The Swan song is a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort, or performance given just before death or retirement.”

If you think the world is fair and square, you are clearly living on the wrong side of Earth. If you think this sorry world has four corners then you need to move out of this planet immediately.

What is the measure of fairness?

If you think you are suffering greater than anyone, you are wrong. If you think you are fortunate than anyone else, you are wrong. There will be always someone out there who will be worse and better than you. There will be always someone who will justify the fairness out of you and put the line between, above and under of each other's lives. It is not a measurement but rather a specification. It is an identity that separates all of us to the fine line of justice.

The world is round and life is a cycle, a mechanism. We get and lose what we deserve. We get and lose what we work hard for. We get and lose what we do not want. We get and lose what we need. We do not get and lose it by chance or by luck. What we get and lose is always meant for us.

I had my fair share of life. What happened, happening and will happen to me was and will always a gift for me. I treasure it. I cherish it and take it as a precious lesson. I accepted that everything is relative and everyone has their own share of ups and downs in life.

Life is fair to those who accept these facts. It is something one must hold throughout life like an armor for the rest of their lives. And for this, I want to thank God for giving me this life for I will be always grateful to what He gives me. To the Perpetualite Archives especially to my second mother, Ma’am Ocampo, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have been all the part of the four wonderful years of my college life, my family and all.

You all have taken a fair share of my life, forever you will be engraved in my heart and memories. Thank you.
