On Joy & Sorrow
       -------Rewritten from Gibran on flight

Your joy is your sorrow back against.

And the selfsame eyebrow by which you frown to express your sorrow was oftentimes elevated.

And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being,the more joy you can contain.

Is not the voice that delivered love the very voice that determined separation?

And is not the hand that clutched you tight the very hand that was waved to say goodbye?

When you are joyous,look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

When you are sorrowful,look again in your heart and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

They are inseparable.
Together they come,and when one sits alone with you at your board,remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.
