Paradox



Paradox by Mormon Enigma

Two truths
Taken together
They are contradictory
Absurd
And defy all reasoning
Yet by themselves
They are self evident
Infallible
And absolute
Two truths
Diametrically opposed to one another
But individually, they each speak of
Love
Harmony
And acceptance
How can one believe in both truths
When together
They are implacably opposed?
How can one reconcile
The irreconcilable?
Yet
I believe


I wrote this verse in my personal journal on November 6, 2006. I was starting to realize that I believed in the church; but, I also believed in being gay. Being gay feels right; yet, I can't be an openly gay man in the church. I cannot resolve these two seemingly contradictory ideas; yet, I strongly believe in both.
