What It Takes

 It takes a trip to hell
To get up to heaven.

And it takes a lifetime 
To hear death's hollow bell.

Joy is ever present
Where pain is ever prime.

You need the knowing of bitter pain.
To know the feeling of love's sweet rain,

Feel the fear, and do it anyway because even though it's not too late, one day, it will be.
