Balance of life - good and bad


A person maintains a balance of feeling
Some are destructive some lift giving healing
Some give great joy whereas others are sad
They can be good or painful and bad
A balance of life is there for us all
As we rise joyfully high then to depths we fall
We have these two huge extremes
To appreciate the opposite to me it seems
If we were never filled with good light
When the darkness falls we’d not fight
Opposites are always there and always kept
We’ve all experienced joy then to have wept
So next time it seems again all is sadly lost
And life’s meaning and purpose has been tossed
Remember though bad the opposite’s still near
Keep trying have faith and good will eventually appear

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
