An Unexplained Sadness

There is a sadness in my own eyes that I can see but cannot comprehend. It is a result of a drift in my essence that is so far from what should have been so that all that remains is sadness. It's such a tiresome journey to walk through life with all its sadness and troubles and all what entails. There's so much wrong that cannot be made right just by one decision, there must be a multitude of them to turn things around.

I wonder what it was that first drew me to this sad and contrived way of life, was it the lack of something or was it something else. Like all my friends I realize the that as time passes chances grow fewer and in effect have done more when older than when I was younger. What does it all mean though, is there something beyond?

isn't it fascinating how we all live and die asking that question, whilst knowing for a fact that no one could ever answer it?

Not quite sure why reading this reminded me of the ending of the poem The Road Not Taken
"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"

Sometime ago i learned that wondering "WHY" is disabling.
That when i realize something in me, i shouldn't distract and disable myself with the WHYs...instead, to reform it i have to decide to dig deep inside me to turn it around or gain unseen knowledge about life.
when tried, the why was clear and simple but at its time...
yet, dear Will, unexplained things within will never stop to show up and disturb us for another journey within...Life, you know!

As for sadness, I find most facts of life have different colours of sadness.
we've just chosen a long time ago to pick lighter and more cynical shades for comforting purposes.

I hope by now and while reading this you'd be feeling better :)
