Paradox

Introduction

This poem was written on the 9th of June. It talks a bit about human nature, though mainly, I think, it's the exploration of the word paradox and my thoughts related to it.

Poem

How does a paradox work?

How can one feel

simultaneously weak and

immovable, strong?

 

How does a paradox work?

How is my core

like diamond, like steel, yet

formed of emotions so tender, so weak?

 

How does a paradox work?

How can we love

and love till the end yet

carry such hatred to

want someone’s death?

 

In any case, a paradox works.

We humans so clever have failed

to discover the peace for this warring world.

 

What is a human?

Caring, compassionate?

Or are we just fauna? Servants of

Nature?

Are we a paradox?

Aren’t we a paradox?

The End
