the revolution of everyday life


there came a point when it appeared
that those who genuinely cared,
not for themselves but for others,
could only ever live in perpetual grief.



though quite sombre by nature,
he nonetheless found it difficult
to take things too seriously;
especially upon realizing that eternity
was only ever perceived
in the most fleeting of glimpses.



and what of the fact that the lightness he often felt
could just as easily bear down with incredible force
almost crushing him?
