oh brave ones
who gets away with it? the charmers, people who make you believe that everything is alright, put your faith in them. ignorance is bliss. amidst the spiralling decay of this world, we either embrace safety or complete destruction.

and they get away with it, they hold power in their hands in this life. but in our deaths we are all the same, death is the great equaliser for all men.

so we try to prolong life, we strive for immortality. we breed clones, organ farms, computer banks to store our conciousness. we want to live forever because that is our weakness. death is the ultimate weakness of humanity. the power of life is also its disempowerment because it is so fragile. like a candle that that wisps away.

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. what good is it for a man if he gains the whole world but forfeits his soul?
- Matthew 16:25-26

and then death comes as a phase, faith in the afterlife. faith in the ressurection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

lately, i just don't feel like i belong here, and rightly so. we cannot serve both God and money.
