From a young age we are told to get good grades. To get a good job. To get a good partner. To get a good house. To secure good assets. To raise good children. To live good lives. To share good times. But when your grades mean nothing. Your job goes to someone else. Your partner moves on. Your assets are sold. Your children lead their own lives. Your good times are resembled by roughly stacked piles of paper, stored away in someone's attic. Your body is carried out the church and all the while you knew you were just a little short of happiness.
