What is life without pain
What is love without forgiveness
Is there hope without doubt
Is there strength without weakness?
Could there be wisdom without folly
Could there be death without life
Is there such a thing in this world
as peace without strife?
Could there be kindness without sacrifice
Could there be darkness without light
Could there be patience without suffering
Could there be blindness without sight?
Is there balance in the opposites
Is there understanding in a difference
do not the good things still taste sweet
without also tasting bitterness?
