2014-06-04 – Sweet Mystery

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014
 
When you force things, reality tears.
And when you don't push to change things,
   reality forms around you in stone.
The Second Law leads us to dissipation,
   and all that saves us is that we want to be more. 
Yea, though I walk through the valley of death,
   there is nothing I can do but resist.
To sit in the middle of all of this,
   and see it clearly is the only peace.
We are missiles launched in an arc towards death
   and our denial of the fact causes us to miss the show.
What sweet mystery is this that we are born into,
   we may never know.
