Life is like a wheel, they say.
It will turn and you’ll be happy,
and when the sadness strikes,

like the sun that shines on your head.
Pets are like soulmates, they say.
They know what you want, what you feel, what you think
before you even speak it,
just by a glance.

often can’t find your way out,
but most times don’t even want to.

for inside they enclose an entire world.

but reality will always be far from it.
