A poem about discovering elements within yourself while fighting off society's so-called standards. (Hint: rhymes with elf bee see tree) ​​

Paradox- Full Poem+Insight

as the Sky cried its heart out

onto the parched surface

and the land that was once overcome by drought

had surrendered to the Rainstorm, wordless

a flow so intense, like a separated lover's rush of tears

after being Bonnie's Clyde for years and years

a Storm so destructive, a killer on the loose

with no remorse, or intention of declaring a truce

and as the sky's nimble fingers toyed

with the lands below and heavens above

a certain uneasiness, a luring void

replaced the sun rays that radiated love

but as time shall come, so will the Sun

causing the Darkness' death grip to be overrun

by the Star's illumination and dazzling glare

while nature boldly danced without a care

in this world where corresponding forces fight

at our own will, our own might

where Sunshine and Rainstorms create a Rainbow

the sad smiling Sun witnesses it

while the Storm doesn't even know

a Rainbow so colorful, so evident, so clear

glistening in the dark, seemingly so queer

with every stroke a thousand words spoken

immortal and precious, like a golden token

and as the curve extended its infinite arms

capturing people's hearts with its playful charms

as waves of warmth awakened their senses

letting down their heavily guarded fences

in this breathtaking weather, so beautifully sunny

how the Sun turned those eyes into pools of honey

but it burnt the Sun to see the almighty Rainstorm

not being treated as if it's nature in it's truest form

being hell-bent​ on breaking a social norm

their lips locked outside her college dorm

If you've made it this far, thank you! Truly, it warms my heart to know that there are people out there who share my love and appreciation of art and poetry.

If you made it this far because you're a friend of mine and have been told a million times by me to support my poetry, then thank you nonetheless!

In all honesty, I​ wrote this poem simply because we were assigned to write a poem in school and so I did what I had been asked to do.

Although I had already turned in the first couple of stanzas, I still felt compelled to write more and continue talking about the feelings that I had bottled up for so long.

"Paradox" talks about the duality of certain personalities and charisma, ones that are put up by people in order to "protect" their hearts and what they hold.

It talks about how there is always someone out there for you no matter how guarded you claim to be. It talks about the conflict between the voices in your head and those in your heart.

To all the people who get so close and then run from their emotions and leave you there to pick up the pieces, thank you for inspiring me.
