Pain Makes Happiness

You must fall
to be able to rise...
standing tall
with your head held high.

You must endure pain
to see what love is really about.
You may have more downs than ups;
but from the downs there is always a way out.

Without experiencing pain,
we wouldn't know what being happy means-
we would walk around smiling,
not knowing the true feelings.

You must know pain
to be thankful for all the good.
Pain and happiness,
it takes both to be understood.

You must feel pain
to receive the world's beautiful ways...
the trees and the sky,
the beauty of nights and days.

Stop all the complaining
of how life might be bad.
We wouldn't feel happy, the way we do,
without knowing the feelings hurt and sad.
