Intellect

Analysis
Of the human heart
Does nothing
    To connect
    One heart
    To another.

 

 

Ephemery

Only the end
Does not end.

And even that
May not
Be true.

 

 

I Perceive

 

What exists
On our periphery
Is often
More beautiful
Than the reality
On which
We focus.

 

  

Lottery

 

Every night

Somewhere in the world

A heart

Is broken.

 

Slugfest

 

Failure

Is what happens

Every day

As you strive

Toward

Success.

 

Acquiesce

Humans are temporary things.

 

These feelings, too,

However they may overpower the mind,

In time, will pass.

 

 

Prioritize

 

Everything

Between here and Heaven

Is only as important

As we decide it

To be.

 

 

methodology

It is not a
matter of
"do" we die
 but of when
 and how.

 

 

Ethics

 

There is no such thing

As individual

Morality.

 

An action

Is only moral

In how it affects

All of us.

 

 

Selfish

Every
Emotional
Reaction
Is
Self-
centred.

As much
As we may think
We feel
Others'
Suffering

The only tears
We can cry
Are our own.

 

Sacrifice

You can save

Everyone

But yourself.

 

When you accept this,

You will be ready

To serve your purpose.

 

 

Similarity

Readiness to love
Is not unlike
The readiness to die.

 

Know Me

 

Don’t

We all

Have

True names

For one

Another?

 

 

They Are the Future

 

Species are a macrocosm

Of what their own cells

Do every day:

 

They race to reproduce

A better-adapted mutation

Before they fade away.

 

It’s like laying a bridge to the future

 One

           desperate,  

                           unsupported  

                                                   brick

                                                              at                      time.

                                                                          a  

 

It Is

 

That which
Allows us
To exist
Without Pain
Is that
Which we
Call
Love.

 

 

Can It Be Broken?

There
Is no
such thing
As Altruism.

Everything
We do
for others
We do
For ourselves.

Even sacrifice.

 

Breath

All of these things
are just emptiness
wrapped
in
the susurrations
of our lips.

 

 

You Want Sad?

Suicide
is just
another
cause
of death,

  up there
  with traffic
  accidents
  and heart
  failure.

 

 

But It’s Not Always Right

 

The weak

Are the products

Of their

Environments:

 

The strong

      Demand

          The environment

        Bend

  To them.

 

 

Vengeance

 

In what way

Does assigning blame
For your misfortunes

Improve
Your position
In life?

 

Isn't it just
An excuse
To do nothing
For yourself?

 

 

Mine

 

There is no such thing

As a right

To anything.

 

What we have,

We earn,

 

Or are blessed with

By good fortune

Or the kindness

Of others.

 

You Can't Crawl Back into the Womb

To demand that things

   Be as they once were

 

Whether in childhood

   Or in ancient days

 

Is to be forever in fear

   And at war with the world. 

 

Conservation of Energy

 

Love everything.

What can you gain from hate?

 

 

Truth: Part I

Every statement
Can become
A question.

 

 

Truth: Part XVI

 

The Devil

Wears

A cloak

Of light.

 

 

Gut

 

The world
Is beautiful,

And wrong

 

 

Misplaced

 

We are put here
    For a purpose.

And mine,


    Sadly,

 

Has nothing
    To do
    With this.

 

A Pity

 

Innocence

Dies

The instant

You begin

To analyze

Yourself.

 

You can’t go back.

 

Goodbye

 

Death

Fills a plane

Of the soul

With emotions

That will

Forever

Be locked

Away.

 

 

To the Choir

 

Philosophers
are just people
who have not
found peace
sharing
their anxieties
with one
another.

If we

were
at peace,
we would not
feel compelled
to explain
and dissect,
    looking
    for the secret
    to the
    satisfaction
    we imagine

    around us.

 

 

Weep

Humanity
Is a plague
Upon
Itself

 

Purpose

Whether

We immerse ourselves

   In this world,

 

Or prepare ourselves

   For one

      Yet to come,

 

Our satisfaction

   While we breathe

Is the only thing

   We can ever hope

      To guarantee.

 

Advice

 

Create.

Don’t

Destroy.

 

 

More Advice

 

Do not think.

Only do.

 

Day

  

Suffering

   is the

holiest

   word

      in the

   English

      language.

 

      It is

      the only

       holy

       word.

 

 

Disciple

 

The avalanche

May overtake

The footsteps

That precipitated it.

 

 

Sit Still

 

Between here
And the end
There are never more

Than seven steps.

 

 

Force of Destruction

 

You are your own apocalypse.
Bring it about whenever you want.
Leave the rest of us alone.

 

 

Is It Really What You Want?

 

Peace

Is offered

Only

In sleep

And in

The grave.
