Lately there has been a lot of news of suicide. People who seemto be successful, to have achieved the things in life one should achieve, have been dying by suicide. Why? I think our lives today are not healthy. We have forgotten the important things, and we made things that are not important into important things.
You didn't get a perfect score on a test? That is ok. You did not get the job you wanted? It is fine. You forgot some words and pronounced things incorrectly? It doesn't matter. Life is not about becoming perfect.
This is why I enjoy haiku. I think haiku speaks of the important things in life. Wake up before the sunrise, and watch as the first beams of light dance on the morning dew. Listen to the cicadas sing as the sunset turns into dusk. Feel the soft breeze blow gently through the trees, rustling the leaves with a gentle rhythm. Enjoy life. Enjoy the moment you have right now. Let each of us live and be happy.
