This Life

It is quite a tangled web we weave

The dreams intertwined with reality

The lies intermittent with honesty

The irreverence mixed with piety

The rational entwined with insanity

The perfection strung with depravity

The malevolence twisted with charity

The uncertain mingled with guarantee

The ugliness contrasted with the beauty

And you-

caught up in it all with me.
