Ball And Chain

Life is like a ball and chain.
One is heavy the other is gain.

The ball is every mistake,
every wrong you make.

The chain is every friend ,
every support that you make.

Without the chain
you’d have nothing to gain,
without the ball
you’d have nothing to learn,
because you need
the ball to hold the chain.

You can’t learn without mistakes,
and you’d have nothing to gain
without the support.
