Paradox of Life

Email To A Friend

Friends. can’t live with them
Since they pass on by
Can’t live without them
Since they hear me cry

G-d. I love Him to pieces
I go to pieces when I think about Him
Children they deplete your energy
And fill you up

Life is a vortex of sadness
Replete with waves of joy

Me I’m a paradox
Of bridges and connection
And alone in my disconnect

Philosophy gives me strength to continue
Makes me wonder why I’m alive

My heart experiences pain, sadness, and loneliness
And delights in my successes, relationships, and holiness

So why am I here?
Unfortunately,
Or Fortunately,
This not something a human being can share

Yet as long as I continue to ride
On the meandering path he provides
And as long as I can press pause on this runaway dance
To discern the meanings of each happenstance

I know I am fulfilling my seemingly purposeless role
In creating a soul that can grow and become whole

(I would love to hear your feedback andĀ if it resonated with you.)
