Balance With Gratitude

Nightmares and daydreams
Sunshine and storms
Happiness and sadness
There is a balance to it all
In the arms of the scales
We need to weigh them equally
Because we can’t know the light
If the darkness doesn’t show
And experience and be thankful
For the wonderful greatness
If we haven’t endured
The difficult and painful
We listen to the humdrum prattle
To feel a communicated connection
Life in black and white
And the many shades of grey
For the joy of complexities and depth
That living has to offer
And the gratitude that we give for it
