There is Pain and Yet There is Joy

by Preetha
(Kochi, India)

There is thorn on every rose stem
Yet there is beauty in its petals

There is happiness in being with loved ones
Yet there is sorrow in parting with them

There is darkness after each day
Yet there is a dawn after each night

There is joy in being wanted
Yet there is an ache in being rejected

There is endeavour in being hurt by others
Yet there is peace in forgiving them

There is frustration in defeat
Yet there is satisfaction in trying further

There is hurt in not having your desires
Yet there is solace in having more than some

There is pain parting with something you love
Yet there is gladness in sharing one's mistakes

There is difficulty in accepting one's mistakes
Yet there is consolation of not committing them again

There is a struggle in keeping to all the morals
Yet there is contentment of living a true life.

Thanks Ramesh for reading and commenting.

Thanks Isabel for the encouraging words.

Thanks Varsha for the comment. I'm doing well in my real life. This was written long ago at the time of parting our friends after the end of pre-university days.
