If I could change one thing,

I’m not sure I would.

I wouldn’t change any bad thing,

Even though I could.


You see, goods are grand,

And bads are bland,

But what would smiles be without frowns?

Or sun without storm,

Rose without thorn,

Ups without downs?


We need the bads to have the goods,

Or life would be a bore.

And besides, life is about growing, learning, failing,

Sometimes life is poor.


If I could change one thing,

I wouldn’t change anything at all.

Because you can never stand up

If you don’t first fall.
