Sometime our nightmares Stem from our dreams, But then sometimes love Is the only thread to mend our seams. Sometimes our laughter Begins when we cry, But sometimes what we see Is the reason we turn a blind eye. Sometimes our enemy Becomes our best friend, But sometimes the ones we love Are the ones we hurt in the end. Sometimes we give Only so that we can receive, But sometimes what we think Is not what we believe. Sometimes we become deaf Because of what we hear, But sometimes the person we criticize Becomes the person we see in the mirror. Sometimes what we want Is not what we need, And sometimes our failure Is the result of our greed. Sometimes our courage Is powered by our fears, But sometimes our happiness Is the reason for our tears. Sometimes our weakness Becomes the source of our strength, And sometimes our impatience Is the reason we rush times length. Sometimes what makes us live Becomes the reason we die, But sometimes our faith Is the only reason we can fly.
