Life Is Never Fair

By Jacob Henderson, 18, Illinois.

People have always said life is unfair
But I don’t see it that way.
I think, “Where did I go wrong?”
But others say, “Don’t blame yourself.”

Who else can I say did it then?
Life isn’t a person nor is it a thing.
More of a saying, is it not?

Now others say life is perfect.
That’s because they have everything they could ever want—
A two-story house, a never-fighting family,
And so much more.

Now, I don’t have that luxury
I have to keep on pushing,
no matter what happens.

“Life” keeps pushing me down.
No, don’t say that.
Where did you go wrong?
Find it, then fix it or do it better.
Never blame others for your faults.
But once again I am told this is wrong.
And when I ask, “Why?”
They respond with:
“It just is.”
