The Perfect Paradox
When you can hear silence behind the noise
and feel space amongst the crowd
when you can sense peace amidst chaos and conflict
and see the beauty of the ugly and drab

When solitude never leads to loneliness
and emptiness seems to overflow
when every stranger looks familiar
and every foreign place feels like home

Then you’ll know that duality is no more
that you’ve stepped beyond contradiction
into the place of perfect paradox
where everything makes sense.
