I was never meant to live

Yet I am still here

Against all odds, I made it

A story has as many versions as it has readers - Winter Of Our Discontent

Dang, the rawness really brings out the powerful emotion of this haiku, well done.
And yes, bring on all the tissues……

Disappointed. I must let the disappointment pass. I will laugh and cry again. I will be kind. But missed kindness is a moment that doesn’t come back again. So be kind. That’s the only meaning of life, to love childishly, wildly, madly, and uncontrollably. You have nothing in this life. Just love crayons and wordy novels. Just love it all and love the bitter grass and love the roadside and the beer cans. Love passionately, everything and with all your heart and with no priorities, no agendas. Love freakishly and obsessively. Love, because you can’t love your way out of the lunatic asylum, but it makes it more fun to be a lunatic.

Bring on the tissues...
