Of Life’s Ironies

There are so many people

who are there only

to laud you in your success,

but never to strengthen you

when you’re fainthearted;

there to commend you

when you get the job done,

but never to smile at you comfortingly

when you commit a mistake.

There to say, “I’m proud of you,”

when you’ve gained world recognition,

but never was once there to encourage you

when you were still treading that trial-filled journey.

There are just so many people

who are ready to smile with you in triumph

without even bothering to know the heartaches

you suffered before reaching that victory…

and without bothering to realize

how they have actually inflicted all the pain.
