A Human Confession


It was love
That brought hate
It was joy
That brought sorrow

It were all facts
That constituted opinions
It was the truth
That came with lies

It was a women
That man still live
It was the night
That brought all the light

Though it was fiction
That came with theories
It was the black one
That even today we have the white

It was winter
That came with summer
It was God
That created the devil

It was health
That came with illness
It was success
That resulted in that failure

But bare
And never dare that
It was life
That brought us death
