Paradox

Pleasure taken
Lost within pain
When will I awaken
And escape my bane

That feeling when down
Feels up to no good
Counseling the crown
Dynamics misunderstood

To purge or persist
Restless rest a fool’s goal
Sweet relief a demon’s kiss
Breaking self in search of whole

This struggle and doubt
Sirens for intervention
We carry no clout
Only misplaced intention

Yet this absence of power
Itself our very strength
Within the darkest hour
We can be carried any length

For an empty vessel
Holds most potential
Yet still we wrestle
Our choice cargo essential

How seldom we see
(This was never about giving up)
The beauty within calamity
(Only giving in)
