No one nothing can be all bad,
nor can anything be all good.
There is nothing in this world
which can be called pure good, bad.
Good and bad are intermingled
even they can’t fight this mingling.
Virtues and vices are like colours
in the palette of human mind.
Yes I agree some people look good
some of them seem utterly bad.
That is because of our way of looking
their virtues hide their vices to us.
Or it is the other way round
their follies are too repulsive to us.
Hence when we look at them
we only see the vices, no virtue.
To be happy and at peace
we should mingle with those
whose virtues wins over vices
when we are looking at them.
