If using language to identify truth, yes there will always be paradox. Language, by itself, cannot describe absolute truth. This doesn't mean absolute truth doesn't exist, quite the contrary.
By definition a statement of absolute truth cannot be a contradiction or paradox. However, it is possible that no one can come up with such a statement.
For example. It is dark outside. That is where I live. On the other side of the world it is incorrect.
If the statement contains a contradiction within it, then there is a paradox or a contradiction.

I heard a speaker refer to something as a half truth. I replied that since truth is absolute, the so called half truth has to be a lie.
The story is that a King called his counselors together and asked them to find the one phrase that would always, under any circumstance, be true. The answer they came up with was;
"This too shall pass"
Yes, in poetry. Or a Zen koan. If you state a paradox beautifully you have an absolute truth. The paradox is the truth.
