LIFE II

We often cry when we are happy  
We laugh when we are sad
 
We do the good and reap the evil
The evil man seem to be blessed
 
We work and sweat and have but little
The slothful man, his coast enlarge
 
We work and pray  
We get no answers  
 
We dig and toil  
We get no gold
 
The one who slumbers  
His barn is full
 
And now the farmer
His kids are starving
 
...A blend of paradoxes
Life is.
