The Perfect Paradox
For a wise one once said
It is good to have
a good façade.
strong and soft
firm yet flexible
unassuming but thoughtful
honesty with wisdom
slow to anger; quick to embrace
full of passion without extreme emotion
fight for love. cry in happiness
No Regret and No Holding Back
To Live with a vision -- Live in Freedom
O, High-reaching and ever-so-poiséd
Giraffe of Mine Existence
Frame my Façade
Though my life be a paradox, I yearn to cherish it!
Why should I worry about the future?
when I don’t even know the present.
Just beyond the horizon
O untouchable image of dulcet dialectics
I chase after your mirage.
I am merely its shadow.
Can I fake it ‘til I make it?
I run in circles.
Tautology knows no bounds.
I chase after You.
Let me fake it
Until I become it.
Impossibly inviting to grasp
Let me know you, Giraffe.
And let the future take care of itself.
Let this be my Life Resolution
To have the polished manner
Of a mock-exasperated straight man,
To be open-hearted and graceful as the giraffe, and
To have the hide of a rhinoceros
And the soul of a child.
Let Me Become
