Without

The truest knowledge of a thing
Comes from being without
For who would notice certainty
If they’d never tasted doubt?

And how much sweeter, cleaner
Is the first fresh breath of air
To one who endured till the dawn
Through a bleak night of despair

To rise again most gratifies
The one who farthest fell
Could we recognize a heaven
If we hadn’t passed through hell?
