"life sucks"

sometimes, life electrifies you--
you feel it pulsating in the tips of your fingers
when someone surprises you
and you feel something rise in you,
the hope you thought had died
(but comes back faster than it left,
in the form of a hot flash,
and shaky hands).

sometimes, life inundates you
in beauty and
candles, burning slowly
on a rainy night in the city,
or you see it in the fluffy white clouds
that drift by
and lull you back to childhood memories
as the sun blazes in the sky,
bright as his eyes.

life won't be kind to you always,
but just you wait, young girl,
for life will always have something to show you.
