Imprisoned But Liberated, - Poem by john o'connell

imprisoned but liberated,
liberated but imprisoned.
sane in being irrational,
rational in being insane.
sobriety in intoxication,
intoxication in sobriety.
sadness in laughter,
laughter in sadness.
night in day,
day in night.
darkness in light,
light in darkness.
sorrow in joy,
joy in sorrow.
tumult in tranquility,
tranquility in tumult.
calmness in storm,
storm in calmness.
beauty in beast,
beast in beauty.
comedy in tragedy,
tragedy in comedy.
death in life,
life in death.
amen.
