          The paradox end

We travel the paradox you and I
Wonder this path of bye the bye.
A plan that stretches from now till then,
Without the knowledge of where or when.

It is a problem that bothered me much,
Since I do not have the philosophers touch.
It shadows my thoughts each day anew,
Never a stop and never a clue.

Do I dare believe any of the says?
With all the fray and weight of the ways?
The gift of life enters with cry
And ends in silence, whimper or sigh.

The answer is somewhere beyond my glen
And I'm sure my children will think it again.
Life is a paradox, I'll say it once more.
And the answer I fear, a nothingness door.

But clearly one thought that I can send.
Make happiness your quest till the end.

Hi Sy,

I was taken by your second stanza with its shadow and the way this focusses onto happiness in the end.  Good one!

Superb, as usual, Seymour!

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Seymour-

Again, you mesmerize with the
thoughts written 'between the lines'.
Wonderful, my friend.
Perhaps not a philosopher ...
but a wonderful poet !

Brilliant to the end this is
Reading yours.....always bliss
Why worry what we cannot feel
Rather be part and jump on the wheel
Bad if it comes to stand still
Thanks SY liked it.
Where do you find all these words, I wonder. )


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Seymour I loved this, specially the last 2 lines!

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

The nothingness door is up the road
who really knows what opening holds
we could be back again to try
writing lovely poems until we die

Love your poetry as always Sy.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Sy...As always you impress me with your poetic talent and this is no exception. I too, really love the last two lines. Sums the whole thing up very nicely. Very nice read.
