My Paradox


More by this author
Tomorrow when I wake,
And find the will to stand,
I've beaten all my logic,
And fulfilled our silly plan.

For sometimes in the morning,
And those wee times of the night,
I contemplate the universe
And the smallness of my life.

Often it is difficult,
To accept these terms of scale, Because we want to be important,
A significant detail.

But from ashes to ashes,
And from dust to dust,
Our only remaining lifeline,
Will be the memory we trust.

So tomorrow when I wake,
And stumble to my feet,
I'll have done myself a justice,
With intellectual defeat.

Loved it! The rhyming was suttle but a really great touch.

I never thought anyone else could possibly share this same philosophical sentiment, but I was wrong. Excellent piece
