No Good without Evil

They say darkness would not exist if we did not have light.
They say that we would not feel joy if pain had never gripped us tight.
They say we cannot have excitement without a little fear.
They say a smile would have less meaning if not preceded with a tear.
They say that laughter would not come if we did not feel sorrow.
They say that a hard life will make us strong and give us wisdom for tomorrow.

I don't want to be in darkness.
I don't want to feel the pain.
I don't want the fear or sorrow.
But, I'm afraid, I'd have nothing to gain.

If pain is one way to excitement...
If hard work will bring success...
Then, I'll make the most of it.
I'll just have to bear it...I guess.
