Penrose staircase paradox, leading up only to go back down.
Never ending,  reaching the top only to reach the bottom ground.
They say you’re closer than you were yesterday, then why do I feel further away?!
Walking backwards with my shoe strings untied, why bother to take a break?!
Living in an illusion where the day becomes night and the night brings day.
Hopelessly sleeping the day away.
A night owl to the darkness, forever I lie awake.
Can’t kill the time so I rather watch it and wait.
