John Marsden Writing Topic #126
Life sucks–because it’s short and it ends eventually. From the moment you’re born you’re on a countdown.
Life sucks–because nothing in it is guaranteed. There’s no guarantee that you’ll live long, maintain perfect health, find your dream job after spending years at uni or find a job at all.
Life sucks–because you don’t know if there is only one life or if reincarnation is real or possible.
Life sucks–because sorrow and death are inevitable.
Life sucks–because any happiness in it never lasts. All good things come to an end.
Life sucks–because you have to grow up eventually.
Life sucks–because you don’t know if karma exists.
Life sucks–because it is life.
