How Bittersweet are the Senses

How bittersweet are the senses
That show me the best and the worst
Of what this world has to offer

Smell
I can smell the perfume wafting of my girl
Or a rose I was to give her
But I can smell someone's house burning down
How bittersweet

Taste
I can taste the food at thanksgiving
But I can taste defeat
I can taste sorrow
How Bittersweet

Feel
I can hold her in my arms
Brush her hair and hold her hand
But I can feel her going away
I can feel my heart break, and fall to peices
How Bittersweet

Hear
I can hear a melody, a chorus of notes
I can hear the voices of my friends
But I can hear screams of fear and pain
How Bittersweet

Sight
I can see the light
And I can see beautiful paintings or photos
But..But I can see things unimaginable

Wait!
I can focus my senses!
I can be an optimist!
look at the things beautiful and magnificent!

..How Amazing

i love how you realize that something can be both a blessing and a curse, such as the senses, but one's outlook can change everything. Great work,keep writing!
