I wrote this months ago for my English class. ^_^
Being in a bad mood yesterday, I started to think about all the unpleasant things that happened to me in the past, which made me upset more. I lost motivation and I just wanted to cry all day in my bed.
Walking home, I saw a beggar sitting on the dirt cold ground. ‘What happened, little miss?’, he asked me with sympathy. ‘Well, I had some problems with a girl from my school. This situation totally got on my nerves’, I said. ‘I don’t know if it could get worse.’
The beggar smiled. ‘So, you don’t have a sick relative?’, he questioned me. ‘No.’ ‘Not even a dying pet? Or a disease you can’t cure?’ ‘I hope not.’, I shivered thinking about the things he mentioned. ‘Hm, it looks like I have more happiness than you. No, sorry, I said it wrong. We both have the same chances to be happy. Try to see the little good things more and try to make good to people- help them, treat them good, be a human.‘, he replied with a touching voice. ‘I don’t have a family, a house, a car not even ten fingers on my legs- they are 8 actually, but do you know what makes me happy and satisfied with my life? Helping other people to see the best from each moment and never miss it. Because you can’t repeat the past, but the memories remain forever.‘
I felt ashamed of myself, losing all afternoon in bad thoughts. ‘Do you know what? You definitely deserve a better life. Good people like you mustn’t live that way.’, a tear escaped from my eye and I gave this person all the money I have in myself. ‘No, please, take the half, so you can give something to other people like me too.‘, he returned the half. ‘Thank you, mister’, I waved at him for goodbye and went to the store to buy something for my family.
