paradise is something you create
a state of mind, of being
it is learning to be still
and finding peace in the chaos
the joy in the mundane things
it is believing in something, someone
or the divine even
it is loving through the darkness
and having faith
or giving up a part of yourself
for someone, for a cause
it is about appreciation
of life and the surprises, its mysteries
it is about bearing the pain
and hoping for better days
it is a celebration for joy
for sadness
for just being alive
for just being you
it is something you work for
live for
it is a riddle and an answer
it can also be you
