If you’ve ever…
been lied to
cried all night
loved someone who didn’t love you back
been made fun of
Life is terrible.
If you’ve ever
Had a first kiss
Played with a puppy
Eaten something delicious
Had an orgasm
Cuddled all night
Laughed till you cried
Shared a smile with a stranger
Fell in love
Blasted the stereo
read a good book
Looked into the eyes of a baby
Did something for someone
Watched a movie that took you away
Looked up at the night sky
Received a compliment
Life is wonderful.
Life is a little terrible & a little wonderful.
If life weren’t terrible sometimes, you would not know wonderful.
If life felt wonderful all the time you wouldn’t know how wonderful, wonderful really is.
The secret lies in knowing that even the terrible is wonderful.
All of it is beautiful.
Beautiful words with so much truth attached. No stress, no life, no trouble, no life, no life, no life. Very well said young lady!

Just wonderful. I was looking for a poem to re-blog and this sums up how I see life. Life has suffering in it but it also has joy. Shakespeare wrote tragedies and comedies and they were all beautiful. The same is true with life.
Oh and read the rest of Erika Fuego’s Poetry!!! Epic renditions of the inner human life!

Without knowing polar opposites, it would be impossible to measure our emotional responses to anything – but you have said it more elegantly. Nice work.

“The secret lies in knowing that even the terrible is wonderful.” Beautiful!
🙂 thank you my friend ❤
Living in balance. That is the key.
Two sides of a coin
two sides of a heart
To love and hate
at the same time
And knowing it is one heart
life is beautiful.
thank you for his fabulous read.
keep on smiling
Thank you so much. Same to you my friend.
Thank you! ❤
I could not agree with you more. Our hearts have been stabbed, bruised, dissected, abused and exploited even. However, we still live in Love and to Love. Life is beautiful because of the sweet, bitter, pain and pleasure. Beautiful post 🙂
Thank you gorgeous. Thank you so much for reading. Much love & light my sister ❤
You speak truth. If not for the difficult times, or valleys, in our lives, how would we be able to appreciate the wonderful times? I love it. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
🙂 Thank you so much for reading beautiful! ❤
If life felt wonderful all the time you wouldn’t know how wonderful, wonderful really is. Indeed!

Hold on to those beautiful thoughts Erika, no matter what comes your way in life, and you can rest assured that all will be alright and there will always be more reasons to smile than cry! Lovely poem my sister…God bless you!
Thank you so much my brother! Much love and light ❤
The profound contrasts in life are needed to make it interesting. Indeed, as you said, “even the terrible is wonderful.” Success is in positivizing, I believe.
Absolutely, i agree with you.
Very wise, you are right, one would not be able to identify the positive if there were not a negative. Well said.
Thank you my friend. 🙂
Ah, life — the ‘Mask’ and the face behind? Smiles or sorrows or bliss…all three and more or less…your words are beautiful ❤
Thank you my friend. You are beautiful.
