Life

Out of no where (honestly) this song just popped into my head.

"Life in this world is a great struggle,
for both the young and old.
And even those who have great riches,
have troubles of their own.
Rich men envy poor men,
poor men envy the rich,
therefore what is the sense in envying your neighbour."

It was a marching song in primary school.
Back then it was just that, a marching song (we'd sing it and march to our classrooms after assembly).
Singing it now, the lyrics seem all the more real and make so much sense.

What can I say, "c'est la vie" (just about the only French I know, well plus "je m'appelle Dentaa").

  1. The song is so true. The poor cry and wish to be like the rich; the rich on the other hand wish they could enjoy the one thing the poor possess- peace of mind.
    I have missed you o, how have you been?

    "Rich men envy poor men, poor men envy the rich, therefore what is the sense in envying your neighbour." Right! so true, so true, we always want what we don't have and don't want what we do have.

    The key, enjoy life where you are no matter the circumstance or conditions.

    peace.
