Paradox

My life is full of dreams,
Albeit with doubts around
I am the thunder that has no sound...

I am the star that
doesn't always shine
I have no wings
But I dream of flying

I know the way,
But cannot lead...
I am the wave
That wouldn't recede

I believe in destiny
But deny fate
I am the sunshine
That'd never fade

I am fire
I am ice
I am frown
I am smile

And I smile with tear in my eye
I am the truth born as a lie
I am black, I am white
I am winter on a summer night

I am fact...I am fiction
I am my own contradiction.

Yo abhinav! everyone's a paradox...depends on how much we realise it and what do we do with it

I have forced myself to contradict myself in order to avoid conforming to my own taste.
