And so he desires both

Life without a dream is like a dream without a life
And so he desires both
A life without water is like water without a life
And so he desires both

Water without a glow is like a glow without water
And so he  desires both
Hope without yoke is like yoke without hope
And so he desires both

A crown without a home is like a home without a crown
And so he desires both
A stem without its root is like a root without its stem
And so he desires both
