love is sweet
yet unkind
love is neat
but can put you in a bind

life is long
yet so short
right is wrong
but there's no support.

Here is there
yet there is here
love is care
but doesn't hold you near

courage is fear
yet fear is strength
eyes can steer
but not at any lenght

life contradicts
yet contradictions are life
a feeling predicts
but can put you in strife

to love is to lose
yet to lose is not to love
to hate is to choose
when push comes to shove

tears are happiness
yet laughs are cries
slobs are messiness
but even a slob dies

killers get killed 
and sometimes robbers get robbed
dealers get dealt
and often mobsters get mobbed

life is unfair
but only to the lind
the world is full of care
 inmy frame of mind

a mind is sadistic
a person is not
a personality is mystic
its not just the pot.

a drug is a lifter
yet it always brings you down.
a nomad is a drifter
but dreams of one town.

the world is strange
yet scientifically explained 
some things are out of range
but you respect what is gained.
