To Leapfrog All Paradox

Are you a sexual being

  if you choose to remain celibate

 

Are you famous or forgotten

  if you live in a cave

 

Are you democrat or republican

  if you’re never to vote

 

Are you black or white

  in the eyes of the blind

 

Are you young or old

  in the heart of a child

 

Are you rich or poor

  when everything’s gone

 

Are you healthy or sick

  when the gallows claim you

 

Are you guilty or innocent

  when the crime is absolved

 

Are you friend or foe

  as the last man to fall

 

Are you committed or unsure

  when the questions retract

 

Can you find what’s been hidden

  with the object removed

 

Can you cry out in silence

  when the noise overuns

 

Can you travel in place

  to unknown destinations

 

Can you swear to the Lord

  with all prophecy in doubt

 

Can you still love your children

  when no longer their father

 

Can you leapfrog all paradox

   —to find your way home
