There must be a dark side

If there's a dark side,
I've never encountered anyone from it.
If there's a dark side,
Then love must not be upon us.
If there's a dark side,
The runes must be upside down.
If there's a dark side,
The world will stop turning round.

Maybe there's a dark side,
Life can be so cruel.
Maybe there's a dark side,
That must be why people duel.
Maybe there's a dark side,
Crime fills the streets.
Maybe there's a dark side,
People too poor to afford to even eat.

There must be a dark side,
Pain and punishment around.
There must be a dark side,
Gunshots, ringing loud.
There must be a dark side,
Death around every corner.
'There must be a dark side!'
According to an elderly mourner.

There is a dark side,
Out there somewhere.
There is a dark side,
Where people do not care.
There is a dark side,
Life is not as we know it.
There is a dark side,
The people of the world show it.
There is a dark side,
Consisting of fear and strife.
There is a dark side,
Where death is the start of life...

Thank you so much :D
I was in a bit of a bad mood when I wrote it, so I think it might show bits of that.
