Everyone's a Mystery



Everyone’s a mystery
All have depth, complexity,
Scars and other injuries
That’s always a guarantee

Everyone’s a paradox
We always tie ourselves in knots
Too complex to fit in a box,
But simply don’t know what we want

Everyone’s a labyrinth
An intricate entanglement
But foolish in our ignorance
And often prone to bafflement.

About this poem

Humans are complex creatures, fraught with flaws and inconsistencies. And in my opinion, that's what makes us interesting.
