Paradox Haiku PoemThanks to Jenn for this week's theme

Paradox


Attention seeker.
Angelic smile wishes fame.
Mask of Lucifer.

Deeds unseen, but felt.
Unwilling to hit spotlight.
Hero in disguise.

~RA

I don't know, if these haikus really suit the given theme. But, I hope they still fit for the definition of paradox as "one exhibiting inexplicable or contradictory aspects". Something or someone that you think is good for real, but is actually not. Or, it could also be the other way around. Trying to define between good or bad, right or wrong might always result as one of the ultimate confusions in life. Ah, now I'm getting confused about my own words. If I'm wrong on all of this, the whole post might become a paradox. Because, I'm making "a statement contrary to received opinion." Please, someone help me out of this. LOL

The meme basics:

Haiku is simple!
It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively
(a great way to use your fingers!)

I don't create poetry, I create myself,
for me my poems are a way to me.

~Edith Södergran

Keep a poem in your heart.
