Why?, by Sandra Rodríguez

 

I wondered why. Why in the world we fell, why we failed. I searched in my head for the answer, but I never wanted to. I was afraid, complaining about my existence day after day. I wished to disappear, that’s what I wanted. But one day, somehow, we wake up in a world that has made changes; horrible changes. A land that is now sick. Sick of sickness. And in that moment we realized how life is, taking the smile off the faces of people who want to survive. That changed everyone including me. I want to help others, because we can make these people to have a life that I never wanted, but I wish for them.
