Paradox seems to rule

Paradox seems to rule

I think we get it backwards,

well perhaps it is I who does,

for in the inner life

paradox seems to rule,

and its fruits show in our lives.

To cling is to lose,

to seek to force our way

is to be defeated in the end.

Control or the attempt

to hedge in those we love,

ends in defeat in one form or another,

and violence and revenge,

lead to further destruction.

There is a death we are called to,

a way that is not obvious,

yet those who take it

experience fuller life

and deeper joy

than they once thought possible.
