This poem is about dissapointment, and getting over disappointment by simply being happy for those who are better off.

The Lives of Those Happier Than I

Each day passes slowly, as I observe the lives of those much happier than. Those who feel no pain of loneliness, and those who feel no hurt from the stones cast by others. I share in their enjoyment, not showing what I truly feel, and not showing who I truly am. my true feeling is a mystery to those around me, and that is how should be. I survive on their happiness, as I have none for myself. Do not seek wisdom from me, as I am nothing but a shell. No true soul lives in me, no true love has ever presented itself to me, and so I am led to believe that it does not exist. Can anyone help me, be it man or deity. It matters not whom is my savior, so long as I am saved

Well, this is a beautiful sad poem. ...... i don;t know what to say because sometimes this is true, it has happened to me, but the best thing you can do is to be optimistic because something beautiful will happen to everyone of us.

this so sad but beautiful at the same time, and its really honourable to be able to find happiness though our people and be happy for them when you are down, not many people can do that : )
