Life Unfolds in Paradoxical Ways

Life Unfolds in Paradoxical Ways


Our life unfolds

In a paradoxical way,

Of light and shadow,

Of night and day,

Of invigorating acts,

Or a drudgery fray.

At times, we are glad,

At others, become sad.

Some days we feel lucid,

And others, going mad,

But the colours and shades,

And rhythms of days,

Are formative of us

In so many ways.

As we learn patience,

And some self-control,

We discover what gives life,

What exacts a toll.

We look on our lives

As admixture of things,

When our voice seems so flat,

When, on occasions, it sings.

I embrace now my life,

In its paradoxical way,

With light following night,

And shade following day.

  1. Oh yes, such is life. It is these paradoxes of life that teach us valuable life lessons and make us grow. A beautiful expression, Simon!
