Paradox

Womblike containment/the freedom of birth
Love of another/self-value, self-worth
Extremes of existence, the process of life
Discovered deep within the strife

To feel the fear of existential
And thus discover universal
Bonding of the greater whole
The unity between each soul

Through independence we discover
We depend on every other
Itís in reflection we can see
The whole that we were meant to be

Happiness, illusive state of mind
Lies in the flow of feelings that we find
Beyond the pain of past experience
As spirit, finally free, becomes the dance

In moments that are pure, unknowing bliss
As friend is found within the angelís kiss
A point of light in darkness shines
A new life builds as old declines
