Disparities (the dark ones)

Few seconds of faint hope
Hours of devastating despair

A brief forced smile
Several nights of unstoppable cry

A little climbing up
The deep and hard fall

The ephemeral first love
The neverending disillusionments

A short happiness from a birth
The ceaseless sorrow from a death

The hesitating first kiss
The ruthless last punch

The sweet smell of flowers
The bitter taste of blood

The dubious faith
The ever stronger skepticism

An uncertain safety
The growing violence

Invisible angels
Living demons

The fading light
The increasing dark

Why do you still believe?
