Life is beautiful.

If you’ve ever…

missed someone

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

Got high

Laughed till you cried

Shared a smile with a stranger

Fell in love

Felt needed

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

felt appreciated

gave love

received love

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.

-Erika Fuego

  1. Erika…Wow! Thanks for reading one of my Blog pieces! “Life is beautiful” was a wonderful read. Much needed, too! YES! I’ve done all those things, to be reminded about the good was amazing 😉
    You are very beautiful and talented to boot! Lovely making your acquaintance today. Thank You! ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Reblogged this on Subjective insights and commented:
    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!

  3. Everything is beautiful, and my responses within Life are beautiful.

    Thank you for the follow. I am looking for blogging buddies- reading and commenting reciprocally. Comment, and I will follow back.

  4. As I read this poem it made me want to experience all of those scenarios with you. I could really feel your soul on this one.

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

  6. Two sides of a coin
    two sides of a heart
    To love and hate
    at the same time
    And knowing it is one heart
    my heart
    life is beautiful.

    thank you for his fabulous read.
    keep on smiling

  7. 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 🙂

  8. 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! 🙂

  9. 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!
