In Skulls grow Roses

For every good there exists evil
for every victory comes with loss,
for every light comes with a shadow
for every liberal there exists a fanatic.

For every sane man is insane inside
with every rise comes a fall,
for every white has a grain of black in it
for every faithful there stands a kaafir.

For every dream comes a nightmare
for every paradise is eventually lost,
for every angel comes a fall
for every destination comes with a journey.

And every journey defines a destination! Interesting! Reminds me of William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies.

We hold light only for a moment, and then it is gone. It is the way of things. You might have a pocket full of posies, but the sickness is there, eating away...

Definitely read Lord of the Flies. Absolutely brilliant.
