Thinking in Paradox Hour 1

I am thinking of how to let go

and I am thinking of how to hold on.

I am thinking about how to move forward

and how to keep from slipping back.

I am thinking about a definition of success

while perseverating on failure.

I am wondering where the road leads

and where to find respite.

I am believing in a sweet form of happiness,

without the conflict of now.

I am thinking about deception in opposition

to lies.

I am thinking about how less might give me

more.
