Coping

Celebrating the life of a broken heart I see. People light Japanese lanterns every year to let go of the past. Well I guess what I am not Japanese. Hahha yeah ironic to come from a person who lost a loved one to a ticking clock.

It’s supposed to help with grieving they say. But how can one forget a part of themselves.

Maybe it will help with forgetting the pain for one or two days. But how can one cope with the empty dark void of space.

How does lighting a dame lantern make me any closer to a person locked in a grave? How I can never hear a voice nor feel there presence?

How does it still after lighting the god dame lantern burn my eyes till they are flooded with tears?

How will it stop me from repeating the memories in my mind. How will it ??? I demand to know!!! I have paid the price for this lantern but why won’t it show it’s magic.

Because it doesn’t. Men are cowards and there cowardly ways to respect life. Probably the only day a man gets respect is the day he dies. No matter how much he works his ass off no one will notice the pain behind that smile. No hard feelings but this this the truth mate!! He wants to hear all the nice things you say to him when he is actually alive and breathing. Not when he is nothing but a stone cold dead boby in a wooden box .

In these words lies my dark humor of bitter truth. I pity this man kind and little by little I forget to be one. Dead people always receive more flowers than the ones who are alive, because regret is greater than gratitude.

Remember everyone is fighting their own battles be kind and humble. Some kind words can make someone’s bad day a little brighter…

WE ARE ALL COPING TO LIVE WITH DEATH,REGRET AND PAIN…. Nothing ever comes back but our memories… MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT….. WE MIGHT NEVER KNOW WHAT OUR LAST WORDS MIGHT BE

  5. ooooof.

    a person who lost a loved one to a ticking clock.

    Could you please clarify what you mean by this line?

    also: I think you mean to write: “In these words lies…” rather than “this”

  6. Deep thoughts I had to take with deep breaths.

    It’s true, mankind has mastered the act of showing most gratitude at the time of death. But the question is, how can we change this mentality?

      Thank you so much Emmanuel for dropping by with your thoughts.

      Yes it’s saddening that man is changing his ways. All that we can do is create awareness and bring up the next generation so that they won’t be a prey to this fast life and won’t forget to know the vaules and morals of humanity

  9. This indeed hit me hard – “Regret is greater than gratitude”. This is wisdom right here. We shouldn’t celebrate the loss more than we do when they are present. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  10. Those words sound painful to hear. You’re right. Men’s sufferings stay hidden sometimes since they express less. But I request you to move on. No matter how hard it is, Life goes on. I wish you to receive mental peace eventually.

      Thank you so much for dropping by with your kind words. I have written this to spread a message that the death receive more flowers out of regret over gratitude. We humans forget to value our morals in the so called fast life of virtual world.

  13. Interestingly, the picture you show is of Petra Jordan and the lanterns are really paper bags with candles in them that stretch the whole 2 km you walk to get to the Treasury (pictured here) It is a tour held only in the summer and it is other-worldy and unforgettable:)

    “Dead men receive more flowers than those alive”. Thats quite sad when you really think about it. And about this “People light Japanese lanterns every year to let go of the past.”.. Didn’t know that. I’ll probably borrow that but with candles.
