The world is a real contrast.
The other side of the world

When I see the other harsh side of the world,
Suffering, misery, poorness, inequity, diseases, and crimes,
My heart is torn into a myriad of pieces,
I am sad and my despair, like a tide within murk,
Rising as a monster invading my mind,

But when I see the dew, birds, flowers, the sun, the moon, and the stars,

My heart is fluttering into multiple butterflies,
Erasing my sorrow, grief, and pain as a balsam,
My happiness as an immense fresh air,
My hope like a golden sword,
Strengthens my faith,
I believe in a better tomorrow.
