Poetry 4 The Lost


within every being, there is a beginning and an end

we seek out that which we find pleasure in, taking us back to the beginning

yet we yearn for the end, cessation of sensation

that which inspires fear, the end

offers nothing but to cease pain and give nothingness

while the beginning offers boundless pleasure in sensation

at the cost of intermittent suffering

to begin implies the assurance of an end

but to end implies the inverse

no beginning without an end, no end without a beginning

the duality of humanity,

innocence cannot persist without deviance


turn back? or venture forward?
