I was sitting on my small bed
In my tiny room the other day.
Pondering about the labyrinth.
I had just finished reading “Looking for Alaska” by John Green.
And should you ever wonder ,
He is one of my favorite writers
But I hate him for his honesty ,
I hate that he reminds you of how life doesn’t have a happy ending.
No it doesn’t,
It has death.
It has a funeral for the living ,
So they can falsely mourn someone they had never known.
And Alaska teaches Miles and I ,
And probably any one who has read the book ,
That the labyrinth isn’t really about life and death,
It’s about the suffering in between.
And sure as hell Simon Bilavor had every right to wonder how to leave the labyrinth.
In this life ,
So much is suffering.
Faith and all those things we come across.
Well call me what you want ,
Depressed and all that
It’s a good life .
You know it’s a good life when you can question your suffering ,
It’s a good life cause you woke up this morning
Cause the sun is hot but that’s good enough for swimming,
Cause you finally got your favorite song,
Cause now you know what it means to be happy.
It’s a good life cause we choose to make it through ,
No happy endings ,
Just death and a funeral for the living ,
So they can falsely mourn someone they barely had the chance to know.
And like Alaska ,
I want to leave this labyrinth straight and fast ,
Like falling asleep and waking up dead .
So let’s get through this labyrinth,
Find something that makes it worth it .
You See for me,
What makes this suffering worth while , is the smiles and laughs I get to see and hear everyday ,
That just makes it a good life
Please read Looking for Alaska by John Green .
