Bitter with life

| Health and happiness

I hope that I never end up like that old grumpy couple standing over there waiting to get off of the train. Look at them both with those ingrown frowns on their faces, stooped down with the invisible load on the shoulders, all kinds of wrinkles emphasizing their extreme disillusionment with the way things turned out, so bitter with life and everything that it could have offered. The saddest part of all is not that they feel like they have wasted a whole lifetime, but rather that they fail to realize that there are still days ahead which in theory could be enjoyed so much as to make up for times past, a hundred- if not a thousand-fold. We will just have to wait and see.
