With too much pain,
comes the releif of joy,
that may seem lame,
but I can tell you otherwise.

With so much greif,
your life seems brief,
and all the more sweet,
from your face to your feet.

With a stick in the eye,
a happy reply,
would be the releif of the pain,
this is what keeps us sane!

There is no utopia,
it cannot be so!
because then joy,
would become so low!

A complement becomes insult,
and insult becomes worse than pain,
and the world becomes a cult.
Pain is what keeps us sane!


A sucky poem by me! I totally sucked out on it, sorry folks.

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Thanks.

living in a Utopia would be so great.
I wish I didn't have to wait.
in a perfect world with all evil gone,
I would be friends with a boy named John.
no guns, no bombs, no W.M.D.s,
In a world with prosperity and peace.
we would be perfect, and have no thoughts of evil.
we could do stunts and not break bones, like Mr. Kneevil.
although this poem won't make sense to some people,
it makes sense to me, and i can't find a word that rhymes with people.

Does anyone know who will be running this now since DragonMistress has resigned? I would hate to bug Carlie about it, but it is a plausible question.
