I’m climbing these stairs
They‘re leading nowhere
Will the circle close
Or come around?
Not sure if I am going up or down

The more that I want the less I got
The more that I am the more I’m not
I try to soar but then I dive
The more I say the more I lie

So much sense confuses me
You let me go I’m still not free
To do what I want I’m way too scared
For paradox I’m not prepared

Pro or con and good or evil
Sad or glad I‘m going mad
I can‘t seem to choose
Coniunctio Oppositorum
Opposites will clash together
Too much to lose

A gentle leaf gets torn by the wind
A stiff old trunk gets kicked in the shin
A handful of sand gets cast to the breeze
A block of ice makes me freeze

Night and day are side by side
Dawning the dusk and dusking the dawn
Friends and foes are sharing one face
Beware of friends greet the unknown

A thesis and its antithesis teases us and synthesizes
Ties me in knots
To be or not to be is not the question it’s the answer
It’s the truth in between

I resign
I’m fine with disillusions
Seeing through
Misleading false conclusions
Sailing to the middle stream
Can‘t decide for one extreme
Drifting in between

Ebb or tide
Wax or wane
Above or below
I‘m running in circles
Whichever path I’ll take
I’ll come around
