I thought life was only 
bad and good moments 
that kept changing seats
I thought heaven was a metaphore 
and that happiness was made of 
some exceptional moments 
I thought we should fight for 
a better work, money, food, clothes 
and that silence could be respectful 
But bad moments are not bad 
when we decide for the good ones 
and heaven is to love and to be loved in return 
Happiness is how we feel 
when we are complete 
even when we are sad. 
We must fight for nothing but peace 
and silence is never, never, respectful 
Each word we don't say 
is a missed opportunity. 

Patricia Evans
