Its moments like this that reality sets me straight.
Seems like everday is another mistake.
There is a purpose for my presence right?
The universe motives unveil reason in clear sight.
I am to fulfill a destiny that I have yet to pursue.
Constantly obsessing over self growth and finding something new.
Prosperity has yet to find me,
an artist starving for more than the wealth that blinds the weak.
The crave for power turning all into liars, decievers, and thieves.
Like vultures, a small taste of fame leads to greed.
Causing all to lose their pride, soaking in their own conceit.
So vain to another mans gain.
Critical watchers who will do anything in the name…
Blasphemous Utopia for just a lifetime without stress that drains.
Leading to puppetry and controlled artist, selling us replicas of the ones before us.
What is great?
What is original?
Promoting envy and boastings materials.
Spiritual guidance slowly fades, as all follows the footsteps the damned has paved.

    1. None needed, life is life, the entire meaning of paradox is to bring attention to a poets stress of art with meaning, and societies many falsehoods and crazy desires. I wanted to bring light to everyone’s veils and my desire as a writer to gain understanding of it all.


      1. It hurts though. I did not say it cause you are weak but just the opposite. I know in my own way that seeking the truth and awakening to whatever is a painful process. And though you would not want to be anyone else not everybody understands what it costs,

      2. Not weak, just unveiled. I see things in multiple ways. Vulnerability doesn’t make you weak, it gives all great character and empathy. Paradox is about more than seeking truth, its also about accepting what is and growing from it. Your feedback is great, thanks for reading my piece β˜ΊπŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ™ŒπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

  1. Finding what ain’t is just as needed as finding what is. Hurts like hell though. There is a path but it seems to go through the valley of “kiss my ass you . . . .” fairly often. Keep writing!
