What's What? - Poem by Amy

What’s one without the other?
What’s happy without sad?
Is what we all must discover
There’s not a good without a bad

Whenever something bad occurs
Remember, and it’s true
There are so many good things
That will follow too

What’s a rose without a thorn?
Happiness without some crying
A baby being born
With a family member dying

When one good thing comes
A bad will come as well
So just look forward to the happy times
And on the bad, not to dwell

If there was nothing bad
We wouldn’t know the good
So personally I’m glad
Now that happiness is understood

What’s one without the other?
What’s a cow without a moo?
What’s one without another?
What’s me without a you?

    'nothing in this world is wholly good, nor wholly evil...'**
    -Abraham Lincoln

    that truth was what you expressed in your poem...10/10
