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.

    'PEACE' ALSO DOES NOT AUGUR WELL FOR THE WORLD, BECAUSE PEACETIME IS LIKE WAR TIME, YES IT IS A PARADOX, , JUST WISH THE POEM DOES NOT PORTEND WORSE THAN THIS, , [ the best part of shahzia's poems is that she is a master craftsman and, highly sensitive and her another name is ORIGINALITY par excellence, , honestly i have no words to praise her.. she stands out here among the crowd, , thanx for being here..

    Your fond paradoxes are increasing in number. It does not matter now to do it RIGHT or commit a FOLLY. Each pair of opposites seems to be two sides of the same coin. Beautiful poem.
