life can be the sunshine,

on peaceful days with bright blue skies,

or life can be the raindrops,

that fall like tears squeezed from your eyes,

life can be the heaven,

that you'll only reach through hell,

since you won't know that you are happy,

if you've not been sad as well,

life can teach hard lessons,

but you will be wiser once you know,

that even roses need both sunshine,

and— a touch of rain to grow.

go where you grow, and grow where you go.
