There Is One Thing

Is it easy to take the blame?
Or is it easier to blame?
Is it easy to forgive?
Or is it easier to forget?
Is it easy to change?
Or is it easier to make change?
Is it easier to be good?
Or is it easier to try?
How can one make the path,
If they don't open not one eye?
One life,
One breathe,
One chance,
One moment,
There is one thing,
That can give you every reason,
There is one thing,
That can save, but not all,
There is one thing,
That we all need,
There is one thing,
That I want be,
There is one thing,
That makes me whole,
But there is one thing,
That breaks me down,
Good, 
Bad,
Left,
Right,
Dark,
Light,
Push,
Pull,
Bright,
Dull,
There is one thing,
That I couldn't be,

Is it easy to say sorry?
Or easier to be sorry?
Is it easy to cry?
Or is it easier to lie?
Is it easy to know?
Or is it easier to ignore?
Is it easy to see?
Or is it easier to imagine?
How can one make the path,
If they don't have the passion?
One break,
One collision,
One tear,
One smile,
One death,
One time,
One world,
One god,
One center,
One love,
There is one thing,
That shows all love,
There is one thing,
That almost made it,
There is one thing,
That brings up hope,
There is one thing,
That I cannot be,
There is one thing,
That makes me grow high,
There is one thing,
That makes me cry,
Good, 
Bad,
Left,
Right,
Dark,
Light,
Push,
Pull,
Bright,
Dull,
There is one thing,
That I couldn't be,

In a world of limits and complexities, paradoxal truths and beautiful lies,
There is never nothing,
but there is at least one thing,
There is one thing,
I couldn't be.
