The World Is Not A Pleasant

Opening old folders and documents, I stumble upon this sweet poem. The first English poem I'd ever read back in high school and I fell in love instantly to this simple yet meaningful words arrangement! ^_^

THE WORLD IS NOT A PLEASANT
By Nikki Giovanni

The world is not a pleasant place
to be without
someone to hold and be held by

A river would stop
it flows if only
a stream were there
to receive it

An ocean would never laugh
if clouds weren't there
to kiss her tears

The world is not
a pleasant place to be without
someone
