The reminder that you’re slowly dying
Stems not from pain or lack of trying but
Regrets, they seep in thick and fast
This human skin won’t always last.
The reminder that you’ve lost your way
Tomorrow’s burdens seize the day
Then when sweet victory arrives; instead
You pander to a swift demise
(Discarding truth to feed the lie).
Who of us yearns to hit their aim
When consequence is just the same?
The reminder that you writhe in fear
Each step you take is faked to bear
A hectic world, that needless noise
The herd obsessing with sleek toys,
Take five steps back to reassess
Your role and how you shoulder stress
You’ll find most tasks ostensible
(Paraded by a crippling whole).
This gold we seek flows inwardly
Then penetrates the cold abyss
Through moments of ecstatic bliss.
