Paradoxical Madness – and the battle strengthens me

e0fc981baf19c44ebfc1a7bcec92f163

Weakness

begets

strength.

Paradoxical madness

I could do without.

Interminable battle,

victory unattainable.

Eternal conflict rages

betwixt prostration

and fortitude.

Languor triumphs,

vitiating valor,

though – conquest

is fleeting

as perseverance

reclaims reign.

And the struggle

makes me strong.

Paradoxical madness

I could do without.
