To take or to give,
To die or to live.
To hold my breath or exhale,
To laugh at life or to wail.

To starve or to eat,
To be cold or have heat.
To swim or to drown,
To smile or to frown.

To be ill and then well,
To see Heaven in Hell.
To be mad and then sane,
To accept love and then pain.

To find comfort in my mind,
To be aware and not blind.
To read every sign,
To write another line.

To be both inside and out,
To know and to doubt.
To be overwhelmed by my fear,
To be tranquil and clear.
