THE PARADOX OF LIFE

To him this may be a wrong 
For you it is a song
At this in the town they frown
But to their king it is a crown
Oh! What a beautiful lake!
Ah! This is a complete fake!

Here it is a terrible pain
With this comes much gain
Flying above is the scorpion's sting
Dancing around is a wedding ring
The coward has gone in to hide
This soldier is fighting with pride

The houses were raised in a  blaze
In the fields are the sheep to graze
him they perceive to be mere fun
But she they behold as their sun
With God some put up a strife
Many in Christ  enjoy eternal life
