I think a lot of us are clearly confused by how an oxymoron is defined. Wikipedia defines an oxymoron as a figure of speech that combines contradicting terms. Is that lone definitive term a false truth, and is it our one choice? It’s seriously funny that we use so many of them on a fairly regular basis and have no idea of the genuine imitation of the English language that we are twisting to suit our purpose.
The larger half of us would not believe how many oxymoronic phrases can interject themselves into our daily lives. We may be absolutely unsure of what the true meaning is, but we ignore the deafening silence and still go on based on that unbiased opinion.
It would be a pretty ugly reality to think that our life is based on a series of contradictory ideas. We struggle enough just to make sense of reality without having to look for hidden meanings and misconstrued messages. It is old news that life is a series of mysteries, and it is sweet sorrow when we realize that we are caught in the cycle of definite maybes.
We are alone together in a churning sea of absurdity. We are lost in the moment when genuine imitation becomes a minor crisis and we have to delve further to free ourselves from a potential crash landing. That moment of anticipated serendipity presents itself, and I will be among the first to admit my unease with the constructive ambiguity.
While we think we are doing nothing to circumvent the problem, there is an increasing decline in that belief. Our systematic way of uncovering these terms comes to a rolling stop and we are forced to look at the original copies of our intended idea.
Don’t let the tragic comedy of the English language confuse you. Be aware of those oxymorons and alleviate any organized chaos in your life. There may be the most subtle exaggeration in the nuance of words but be cognizant of the silent alarm that will be an awfully good warning of the presence of the greater evil of these false truths.
This post may be going nowhere. But while you search for the consistent uncertainties in my writing…..give me your extensive briefing and let me know how many oxymorons you think there were in this post. I will wait through the quiet noise and give you my educated guess after I’ve had my Jumbo Shrimp and boneless ribs for dinner. Good grief, this post may be a whole piece of true fiction. Sorry if it was a little much!
