Love and hate,
Despair and loss.
If there is a price for living
That is the cost.
You cannot avoid these things.
No, you cannot hide.
Some of those come from outside yourself
The others, from inside.
If you do not experience these things
Your life will not be full.
It's the experiences that make who you are.
Unless you want to live in a bubble.
If you are having a bad time and want to die
Just hold on a little longer
It's getting past the bad times
That can help make us stronger.

there is a fine line between the two (Love and Hate) sometimes it's hard not to cross it in our struggles
