What is the emotion in this poem?
Sadness and Joy
(c)2014 Angela Baca
On the other side of sadness is joy.
We have heard this so many times.
When you are in the midst of sadness
Joy seems very far away and unlikely.
It's like craving a piece of chocolate cake
But the bakery is closed
And you don't have any cake mix.
Like two sides of a coin,
Sadness and joy give you strength.
They remind you who and what are important
In your life.
If you expect every day to be perfect,
You will often be disappointed.
