a structured free-verse poem about oxymorons

I am

by kateurquhart

I am a living contradiction

A redundant oxymoron

I am stubbornly open minded

And recklessly careful with my heart

I fall in love slowly

all too soon

I care too much about nothing at all

And too little about everything

I am passionately apathetic

Selfish in my compassion

And far too truthful in my lies

I am unassumingly judgemental

I cry tears of joy

And laugh away my sadness

I love to hate

I hate to love

I know everything

I know nothing

I am a wise fool

An ignorant intellectual

Young in my body and old in my mind

An ancient youth

Growing in my decay

Crumbling in my stength

I am all and nothing

All at once

A living contradiction

A redundant oxymoron

@bernardtwindwil I'm glad you enjoyed it! After discussing oxymorons in my Literature class, I was inspired to write this poem of contradictions. I love getting positive feedback from people!
