A Bundle of Contradictions


In the Secret Annex within

We have the silver lining

As well as the black cloud-

So our skin is of

Darkness and of light-

At times we are ‘The Tyger’

At times, ‘The Lamb’

The struggle goes on-

There is always a winner-

Sometimes it’s the misanthrope

Sometimes it’s Anne-
