Contradiction 

Our consciousness 

is the conjuror 

of many contradictions,

this world 

in which we live 

is a lavish stage

of grand illusion,
each act is filled 

with sharp edges

and serene softness,

twisted knots,

and breathless beauty,
reality is nothing 

but our soul’s mirror,

it takes such courage 

to gaze into it,

and admit our thoughts

create everything we see
but sometimes 

it’s not bravery at all,

sometimes we’re just tired 

of being broken and 

simply have no more 

tears left to cry.
