The Truth

Are lies always bad? Lies to give hope? Lies for lives? I dunno. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in fancy metaphysical questions that we forget the truth behind life, behind the fogged window. The truth that drives us to throw billion dollar super computers into the void of space, to fight Goliath, to fall in love. What drives us humans and our stupid decisions? 

If you knew, you wouldn't be reading this, and if I knew, I wouldn't be writing this. Some call it science, some fate, and some call it random. The point is, all we have is the fogged facts of life. Sure, we can see stuff through the fogged window, and it's a little clearer the closer you get. And yet we build monuments around this uncertainty, die for it, shed tears for it, setting it in stone so we feel static in an ever expanding universe.


We're as blind as bats. 

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

The shortsighted truth: We live, we die, we forget. We're constantly trying to leave a mark, to be remembered, to be different. You will be forgotten. Who you are doesn't matter. What does matter, is what you do. How will you add your voice to the chaotic yet harmonic humanity that echos through the cosmos like a pin dropped in a noisy room?

What will your verse be? (No wait– that's an Apple commercial.)

  1. Whoa okay, where the heck did you come from and where have you been hiding? This is all really slap-to-the-face good.

    1. Thanks! Let's just say I never really stopped hiding. Anyway, I just read your blog, too. Pretty cool, if I do say so myself. Love the design.

    Dude.

    "Who you are doesn't matter."

    Dude!

    My voice never felt so important. Thank you. And I love that Apple commercial.

    Welcome to Paris.

  3. I love your blog. I wanted to high five you just with your little thingy at the top that talks about this blog not being for anyone but you. People get way too caught up with pleasing people and being liked.

    This post really hit home with me. It was comforting for some reason, and refreshing. Beautiful writing.
