Paradox

I don't get peace in tranquillity,
Nor happiness in bliss,
In vain I seek
some accord in harmony.

Love does not warm my heart,
Friends no longer enliven my spirit,
I find now in rivalry
No challenge!

At home in a state of chaos
I feel listless in gathering peace,
Wrapped up in worries and problems
I ponder over the ensuing solutions.

Lost in the pursuit of abstraction
I seek an icon of perfection,
I dream of things sublime
And reach beyond time!

    Very sad and somehow profound as well. You are to young to have lost so much of your enthusiasm. Perhaps this is what is meant as an old soul. Very well written Abdul.

    I like how you did your poem so uniquely. your poem shows sadness and perhaps some hope in reaching for the sublime. Very interesting!
