Modern Existence

Death is but a bridge
that we seek
as we blunder through
trouble and woe
while masked with visions
of life’s sweet promise.
A lie adorned with
glitter and shame,
enticing in its naiveté,
forever compelling us
towards false hopes and dreams.

Death leads us to that
which redeems us,
to that which transforms us,
to that which saves us
from the rotting that occurs
in this facade we accept
as everlasting life.
There is no form
beyond what we imagine
in our twisted vision
of corporeal existence.

We are not real.
We are imagined lives
in an imaginary world
created by our minds
to abate the madness
which exists in us all.
We are one;
all of the same consciousness.
We exist in a unity
that we are determined
to deny.

There is no singularity.

There is no life.

There is only existence.
