The Paradox

Updated on March 11, 2012

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.






The paradox

Lies within

Breaking me down

Two truths

Become one

Slowing my mind

With thoughts

Left uncombined

I wait

I wonder

For my thoughts

To die down

To slumber

What is reality

Can it be seen

Shining through

The moon and the stars

Cannot lead me to peace

The sun's full force

It's rays fiery fierce

Giving me power

That I've never seen

Where truth and lies

Play in between

      And again, Caroline, your artwork so fits your words. That was kind of a shocker to see at first, though.

      I love paradoxes and this poem exemplifies that of what a paradox truly is, which is a sort of twisted view on things. perplexing it may be but reality can steer many of us in such directions at times, leaving people only to question.

      Awesome creativity, thanks for sharing your writing talent, and I may need to follow you now to see many more of your creative hubs you may have to offer. Voted up and getting pinned as well to my '2012 Poetry' board on Pinterest. Beautiful image as well.
