If Life Was Fair

If life was fair, everyone would achieve their goals. No one would live an unfulfilled life.

If life was fair, no one would know the harshness of abandonment. No one would feel unloved or unappreciated.

If life was fair, all travelers would return home to the waiting arms of their loved ones. Soldiers wouldn’t be needed because there would be no wars.

If life was fair, no one would die before their time.

Unfortunately, many people have felt the pain of a life lost too soon. It could be a family member who fought against illness and lost or a friend who was taken by a tragic accident.

The loss is never felt by just one person. The loss is felt by everyone who has ever been blessed to meet them in their short life.

If life was fair, you would still be alive. You would have returned home from your travels like you always said you would.

While you may be gone at the tender age of 26, I was blessed to have known you for the short time that I did. I may have only known you for a few months during Katimavik, but those months changed my life.

We may have been complete opposites, but you taught me so much. Your outgoing, rambunctious life clashed with my polished image and showed me that perfection isn’t everything. You taught me that life is full of imperfections that need to be enjoyed.

I was terrified of anything that I deemed inappropriate, including your not so inappropriate touching. But you continued to push my boundaries and I am better for it. You taught me that lines were meant to be crossed and life was meant to be lived.

While we haven’t spoken in awhile, I have never forgotten you or your insatiable urge to travel. I hope that in death, you have finally found your way back home and that your spirit is at rest.

So I raise to you the parting glass. For you have risen to take your leave, not with a tear but with a joyful wish to live life to the fullest.

The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
