Broken and twisted.
Used and abused.
Taken for rides.
Dropped from heights.
Plunged in depths.
Cut and bruised.
Hurt and hurtled.
Pushed and shoved.
Cheated and spurned.
Left disenchanted.
And still they smile.
Like a thousand suns.
And still they love,
Like no other one.
And still they fight,
Till all is done.
And still they laugh,
Brimming with fun.
And still they hope,
All wrongs will be undone.
Beautiful people do not just happen.
It takes a lifetime to be one.

(Inspired by Talya-

Thx Vivek-this is the text-The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Somehow I cannot forget the visual of "one tear drop" ...
Nevertheless .... this one's brilliant!
