Bitterness of Life

Bitterness of Life Birth brings delight at home Death saddens hearts, yet both are parts of life Human creatures walk, slip and move on Today you cry but tomorrow you laugh For sickness damages health and breaks pockets As good health will allow you to rejoice. With rain, plants celebrate; but without it, they mourn When you are in love, life is sweet When love dies off, you sweat red Life always changes; it has ups and downs Valleys, hills, swamps and mountains are obvious But this is like the verses in these stanzas Some are longer than others.
