The Balance - Poem by Anna Andrews

If all men were born warriors
Would there be peace?
If all stars shined with glory
Would we have a night?
If all dreams were reached
Would there be wisdom for us to teach?
And would there be nightmares
For our minds to fight

There is no fire without smoke
No sea without ships
No king without crown
Nor whispers without lips

There are no heavens without gods
No faith without hope
No spring with no rose
Nor a harbour without rope

There is no light without shadow
No mountain without a climb
No passion without love
Nor hands without time

If there was no balance
How would everything weigh?
There would be no dreams
Without nightmares to slay
Challenge the balance
To conquer your dreams
To climb without climbing
Would it really be a dream?
