A Natural


1. A natural

There’s a funny kind of sadness that’s comforting, but odd.

And a silly sort of happiness where I know I’m just a fraud.

There’re tears that signal victory, and laughter that means doom;

Cleansing that contaminates and clutter that makes room.

There’s tenderness in bitterness and emptiness in love,

There’s violence in a tender stroke and mercy in a shove.

A river wrapped around the world can show you what it’s like,

To be at one with peace and hate, with ecstasy and strife.

And if I could raft around that bend, I’d know just what to do.

I’d stretch my hand out to the shore and say: “I love you too.”
