What I Want

The hope is far,
The pain is near.
The joy is gone,
Sorrow appears.
The warmth diminished,
Ice freezes from tears.
There you go,
Here I stay.
The best things are hard to get,
Yet the worst things in life come free to us.
Heaven's in paradise,
Hell is fear.
The goal is there,
But me, still here.

    Not really. I just finished reading it and I find that it is a good one.
