Sometimes you need to know an alcoholic

     to know your limit for beer.

Sometimes you need to witness weakness

     to conquer fear.

Sometimes you need to know addiction

     to know when to steer clear.

Sometimes you need to raise the volume too loud

     to really be able to hear.

Sometimes you need to be blinded

     before you can really see.

Sometimes you need to feel trapped

     before you can gather the strength to flee.

Sometimes you need to somewhat die inside

     to realize that you are actually alive.

Sometimes you need to struggle and strive

     to understand that you can survive.

Sometimes your happiness needs to be emptied now and then

     so that there will be room to fill you up again.

Sometimes, no matter now much it hurts,

     you need to remind yourself how much each experience is really worth.

Then always, when love comes to you in spontaneous bursts,

     there is nothing more powerful and beautiful that can exist on this earth.
