No One Wants to Know the Darkness

No one wants to know the darkness

They feel that they have let that go

But light seems so empty and hollow

Without that dark to show its glow


No one wants to feel the pain

Yet our joy springs from the pit of it

We cannot know our abode of happy

Without pain arising as the transit


No one wants to be in melancholy

They don’t want to feel the blues

Yet peace wanders in the desert

And we put on our soul-searching shoes


We are a changing river of emotions

And no one feeling stays the same

Until we reach the place of home

The torrents claim our single name
