Drifting

The Balance

if we never fell in the darkness,
then why would we seek the 'light'?
if we never ever felt sadness,
then how would we know where our 'happiness' lies?

if we never faced lies,
then why wouldn't we hold anything higher than the 'truth'?
if there was no death,
then why would we value this 'life'?

if there was no betrayal,
then how would we know what true 'friendship' is?
if we never cried for someone,
then how would we know who is our heart's true 'love'?

if sometimes things didn't look impossible,
then why would we believe in 'miracles'?
if miracles occurred everyday,
then why would we fold our hands and look up and 'pray'?

"how important everything is!"
told above by a few 'ifs' and 'whys'
"how a perfect balance exists"
in every creation of the Almighty, 

from this earth to the skies..


so think again..

if we never did anything wrong,
then how would we know what is 'right'?
if we never sensed unhappiness,
how would we appreciate our most beautiful gesture, we call 'smile' :)

    A balance is needed not just to choose between the two options, but also to know yourself better!
