Fond Paradoxes ii
War is like Peace
in which lawlessness prevails
no comfort but terror without ease.
Evening is like Morning
having twilight of the same hues
both mark the end of each other.
Peers are like foes
a snake in the grass
seeking for self-concerns.
A lie is like the Truth
spoken with an evil base
causing end to the smile of hearts.
Gloom is like Glee
bringing tears to eyes
two wheels moving on the same axle-tree.
Education is like stark ignorance
teaching doubts while growing faith
in fortune-teller rather than fortune-Maker.
