Bitter sweet life

Sadness sets in like the night
Gradually and slowly in the dimming light
It melts the light into the horizon
Occupying the vast space, its job done

You fall asleep waiting for day to appear
You wait for dawn to near
You close your eyes and enter a nightmare
You cry in virtual reality leaving you bare

Finally it's over and day sets in
It comes with a boasting brightness claiming its win
It washes away any trace of the dark
It fills you with hope and joy leaving a permanent mark

But beware, night will come
It will come and take over with its haunting hum
Along with it comes the nightmares and fears
Along with it comes the wait and the tears

Don't worry, as night is sad day is happy
Happiness will come, with all of its golden glory
It will shine all around
Making its presence profound

It's a circle it will never end for all we know
It's a circle to which we have no choice but bow
We accept with modesty that life is this
Neither is it pure torture nor pure bliss

It's a constant battle forever
Between sadness and happiness, no one will win however
Both always are in equal measure
Sadness weighs you down happiness is a buoyant pleasure.
