Fearless Reason

Fearless reason in an age of frightened absurdity.

Month: February, 2018

Your Duty is Love

Forsake
duty that
is not loved.

It is not
your burden
to bear.

Your
duty is
love.

Your
burden
joy.

Change
is nature’s
law.

Permanence
mankind’s
nightmare.

Forsake
that which
is not yours.

Duty is Heavy

Duty is heavy
when the heart
is not light.

Obligations
undertaken
but not forsaken.

Imprison
us to the
past.

Binding
us to
lives.

Chosen
by former
selves.

Long after
joy and desire
have fled.

To be Obscure

I want
to be
obscure.

Unseen
unknown
unsolicited.

I want
to be
nobody.

Nameless
formless
empty.

I want
to be
unbound.

Unburdened
Unbidden
Unencumbered.

I want
to be
free.

May the Suffering End with Us

May the
suffering
end with us.

Let us
receive
it.

Absorb
its
inertia.

But not
pass it
on.

May the
suffering
end in us.

Let us
heal
it.

Transmute
its
nature.

Then
pass it
on.

May the
old world
end with us.

Wed to Suffering

We are not
haunted
by our memories.

We
haunt
them.

We
revisit
the past.

Searching
for
meaning.

Picking
at
scabs.

Pain
becomes
us.

Divorced
from the
present.

We are
wed to
suffering.
