Do you remember that moment when you realized something pivotal about the way our world works? Whether it was something wonderful, horrifying, upsetting or something that simply blew you away? And you realized: “Gosh, how naive I was!”
I just can’t even
The complex and the simple
Of life and life inbred
Why can’t the Supreme
And provide that heavenly promise instead?
The shocks and shakes I get,
I’ve seen too much;
Was that what Mother once foretold?
I cry —
Life’s too candid
To ask in retrospect —
Did Hope hang far but near?
Does Faith fall botched?
Is love in all its intrinsic dear
Leave an exasperating legacy unwatched?
As Digital’s users once told me:
I can’t even…
I won’t even…
Life’s compass in all his sin is set
I couldn’t even…
I wouldn’t even…
If you think this sounds absurd, you’re right.
