"um?"-me ;9


A world without pain

A world without sorrow

A world with white stain

A world with the same tomorrow

A world lacking empathy has nothing to gain

A world lacking lows can only joys borrow

A world dry has lost its rain

A world looking sweet but inside bitter like yarrow

A world of grey smiles true joy a strain

A world for those who've seen dark and light would harrow

Your perfect world would be sad and dull. My eyes love the spectrum from dark to light whole. A perfect world hides misery and lonlieness, its no diamond, though earth is still coal.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
