Variety - Poem by Ashley
Must you be so difficult so
as to find pleasure in only extravagance.
Must it be only the diamond, or he silk, or the heel, or the hair
that is worth enough to wear.
Must you be difficult so
as to find pleasure in only simplicity.
Must it be nature or emotion that drives you so.
Where is the variety, lo!
With pleasure and gain come balance and pain.
For there cannot be one without its opposite.
Nothing can be without the tools used to make it.
Much as nothing is gained without nothing taken away
in one form or another.
So remember to balance life's scale,
and maintain a good weight.
Whether or not you have to add or take away.
