Cheating the Scales

Another poem about a role-playing character, the wizard Coren.

Loss and sorrow I have felt, but nothing can compare
When the world is at its worst, when it’s so unfair
Love and friendship I have felt, yet nothing it compares
When the world shows its best, when everybody cares
Good and evil balancing, I would cheat the scales
Nothing brings the tears to me, as when evil prevails
