Paradox

Somber sunny days are the paradox of life
Contemplating the penitent for spite,
And musing a gloating lover with such pique
Wishing for the strength to dispel
Hence giving ramification to grow
Alluring thoughts of a commodious lifestyle
With happiness and insouciant living
Sundry feelings of callous actions and dearth emotions
Yet feelings of reverence and love interfere
As we face the pain with prowess
Generalizing feelings to hide in shadows with manipulation
Only passing legacies of pain and phobia to unborn children
