Hole (Sky View)

Life in society,

a series of holes

that widen,

waiting for you to fall through.

Like socks.

Someone will always take your place.

Hamster Wheel 1

Opportunities lost,

opportunities found,

embraced

and trashed…

past, present, future…

human progress

and hamster wheels.

Another day, big effort, hard work,

two steps forward, progress…

Congratulations.

Every breath, you are closer to death.

Ant Hill in Forest, Lietuva

 

We fight, such as we can,

but we’re not ants,

we crave something better.

The downside of having a soul.

We trek around the mountain infinite times,

until we drop,

the body & mind can only take so much.

On death’s bed, last rites,

perhaps then we realize,

futility is human-made.

Hero or fool…

There’s a fine line.

Firefighters and liquidators rue,

futility,

for which all was given…

Half-Life in Billions.

Self defense futile,

mutually assured decay,

cease, desist, delay…

Lilit (Lilith), John Collier, 1887

 

If you’re a cognizant being,

regardless of your position,

if you wait long enough,

and are quiet enough to listen,

a tsunami of futility will hit,

and

questioning the point of existence,

you will either run screaming

or curl into a foetal ball.

Your best hope?

Another world.

Sleep, friend,

embrace the pressure on your chest,

Lilit awaits.

“There now, isn’t that better?

We have the TV to distract us.

So much better than listening

to the sound of our own heartbeats

and contemplating the futility

of society and existence…”

Personally,

then and there,

I thought my actions were heroic.

I am informed, however,

here and now,

that my actions were foolish,

at best comedic.

Alas.

Place, time, mind.

Ironic.

Lifestyles,

constant farce,

futile.

I’m glad, at least, I made you smile.

She tells me about her friend

and her problems,

so many problems:

medical, emotional, financial,

personal, general, universal.

She’s been mistreated and hard-done-by,

truly.

And to top it off,

she’s just turned 30,

she’s depressed,

she suddenly feels old.

Poor baby.

My heart bleeds.

With all her problems,

I believe,

she’s lucky she’s feeling anything.
