Paradox


When the silliness of life is stripped away
What is left?

The cold reality
Like lead --
Your heart cries out within you

The lonely frozen expanse
Road of life
Dreaded path

A contented restlessness
Apathetic passion
Like the meeting of night with day
Faster than expected, slower than desired

Realistic night
Of peaceful rest and terrifying hue

Level-headed day
Lazy production of never-ending toil

Step by step
Travelers tread
This path of hopes and fears --

For hopes and fears seem all that's left
When the silliness of life is stripped away
