The Contrary

the-contrary

I am what's up, pulled back by what's down.


I am a smile, next to a frown.


I am what floats, next to what sinks.


I am a wide eye, next to a wink.


I am what's right, surrounded by spite.


I am what's bright, but trapped in the night.


I am what's good, dragged down by whats bad.


I am what's glad, bummed out by what's sad.


I am what's fast, held back by what's slow.


I want to be happy, so now I must go.
