You don't know yet

You've never been dirty 
Unless you've been clean 
Like talking about colors to 
Someone who’s never seen
You don't know what fear is 
Unless you've been brave
You don't know what living is 
Unless you've seen decay
You don't know what night is
Unless you've seen day
You don't know what love is 
Unless you've felt hate

    True words, you don't know one until knowing the other. In order to reach bliss, you have to go through hell. Deep words.
