Life is evil
Life is mean
Life is cruel
And Life is obscene
These are the words
Uttered by those who have not seen
What Life truly has to offer
And all they have yet to glean.
The hidden treausres
So carefully hidden away
In the guise of family and friends,
Of good times both sober and inebriated.
It is not something one can grasp so easily
And often the ones we think the poorest are the richest of us all.
For this rare resource cannot be mined
Worth more than solid gold, diamonds and assorted jewels combined.
You cannot hope to gain it with
Such materials and falsehoods.
Life may be evil
And mean
Cruel
Obscene
But it also must be good
And kind
Compassionate
Pure
For one state cannot exist without the other.
