Like balls in a pinball

We are like balls in a pinball.
We are many, we move continuously.
We don’t know who we will meet.
Unaware that at any time a flipper can strike us.
Suffering teaches silence and patience to someone.
Someone learned to be satisfied.
And someone else chases for eternity,
what they will not have ever.

I’ve taken this pic with my mobile to a primula on one of terraces of my house.
