Weight

One scale to balance all

The good against the bad

When our laughter was contagious

When we knew not what we had

 

Then we sank into a darkness

Swallowed up within our strife

When our muscles lost the memories

Of the exercise of life

 

But the veil again was lifted

By a sneaking sort of joy

Once again we smiled at rainbows

And our grumbles became coy

 

Then time again has ambled

And again the clouds turn dark

But instead you fight decension

You reject somber and stark

 

As your life swirls on around you

And the years are swift and mounting

You cling tighter to the good times

For the bad are not worth counting

 

The moments that we dwell upon

For many, far too late

While the bad can pile around us

It’s the good that holds the weight
