    [b]Views on Life[/b]
    Life is like a harsh, cruel master
    Giving you endless amounts of labor
    Life is like an unjust official
    Giving you less when you deserve something special
    Life is like the mountains: towering and high
    But when you climb the top, you'll reach the sky
    Life is like the sea, treacherous during storms
    But let this pass, and see beauty in all its forms
    Life is like a blessing
    Giving you many things worth treasuring
    Life is like a teacher
    Teaching lessons that you must remember

    In the end, life is a surprise
    Filled with birth, consequence and demise
    Life is a journey worth taking after all
    An experience filled with triumph and downfall

    [A summary on the different views on life. Some think life is trying to make them suffer, thus, they hate it. Some may think that life revolves around the give-and-receive principle. Your efforts must equal the reward you are trying to get. And lastly, some may view life is a blessing in itself, probably because they must be pretty happy right now. ]

    [b]The Comforting Darkness[/b]
    The darkness that engulfs
    my soul is eternal
    A part of my mind, body and soul
    Forever will it consume me
    possess my being
    Forever will it surround me
    protect me from harm
    The light is too blinding
    it burns my eyes!
    And thus, I step away
    rejecting its call
    A being of darkness
    such as I
    does not find refuge
    in the light
    I am not a messenger
    of evil I say
    Nor am I
    a herald of doom
    I simply find comfort
    in the shadows of night
    For beings of darkness
    such as I
    do not find refuge
    in the light

    [Darkness does not always represent evil, for darkness gives meaning to the light, which is mostly branded as a sign of evil. Darkness gives us comfort during the night; I don't think most of us can sleep with the light on. Also, darkness shelters nocturnal animals from the burning, harsh light of the sun, so in a way, it is a sign of comfort.]

    [b]The Deceitful Light[/b]
    Ah, the light
    Branded by most
    as a holy symbol, a divine sign
    The one that leads the sheep
    into greener pastures, into cooler waters
    It leads them
    into a spiral of trickery
    into a den of wolves
    And the sheep suffer
    bleating for their feeble lives
    Indeed, it is pitiful
    But for those who can truly see
    who know the deceit
    laid out behind
    those sparkles of light
    They remain in the dark
    protected by its shadowy might
    aware of the hideous truth
    Unwilling to fall
    into a hidden pit
    But ever determined
    to cross over it
    and overcome its trickery
    For who ever said
    that bowing to the light
    will release you from your worry?

    [People who claim to be holy are not always holy. Outside in front of the people, they look like saints, but on the inside, they might are gold-hungry thieves who care nothing about the people. Remember, things are not always as they seem, and the light can play tricks with your mind and eyes. So what do you think? Is the light really a sign of freedom and gallantry, or is it a deceitful insignia, leading people into a maze of tricks and lies? You decide.]
