Think About It - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Think if all were healthy
and no one felt so unhappy.
Think if all were in perfect form
and no one else look malformed.
Think if only there were laughter
and eyes were empty of tears.

Think if all days were sunny
and drops of rain would never fall?
Could we really love our health and body?
Could we really value joy over sorrow?
Could we really set our eyes on what is whole?
Could we really see life in its real form?

    I have just read your poem. It's beautiful! Gave it 9/10.
    If darkness weren't there, we wouldn't have known light. Life has its ups and downs. Unless we see both, we are not complete.
