Truth be Told [an insignificant writing]

Running from a monster
in a race that always ends
in death,
you are supposed to find meaning
in constantly running,
luxuriously dining on niblets
of pure trash.

Be the best you can be
in this state of persistent
existential peril.

Truth be told here and now,

There is no love in this world
There is no real joy to be found
There is no reward for a well-lived life
There is no hope for peace of mind
There is no calm quiet at the end of a long day
There is no magic power of destiny
There is no good person, not one
There is no true strength in mankind
There is no rainbow in the sky, it is a lie
There is no beauty untarnished, all is vain
There is no sweet voice on the air
There is no hand to hold that can help
There is no pure motivation in the hearts of women
There is no laughter, nor rejoicing
There is no firelight by which to dream
There is no excitement in new places or new people

And this never stops, the power
of there simply being nothing worth anything
It never sleeps, it never forgives
It never relents

This power of nothing will burn a hole
through each one's head
until we are all
quite dead

Truth be told here and now

You have written a very powerful piece. It expresses the sadness so many of us feel about what has become of this world we live in. I hope I can share a couple things with you and please be assured I am not wanting to preach to you or tell you what to do.

I have been in that dark place myself at times but the yin and yang of life has shown me the balance. Understanding the balance is required to understand life. It may be dark in the night but joy comes in the morning with the light. The rain falls upon the just and the unjust alike, terrible things happen to wonderful people and wonderful things happen to terrible people. This is a fallen world, broken and corrupted by us. Whenever I despair I spend time in nature and reconnect with the earth. I then spend time with my loved ones to reconnect with them and then I come on ATS and connect with my global family.

Peace to you and may you find joy to refresh your soul.

I read your reply months ago, but took a second look this morning.

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your perspective on what I wrote.

Sometimes we forget things and others can help to remind us.
