There is nothing that I can do to change the mind of anyone.
Nothing at all.
For a time I tried
And I tried harder later
And then I gave up and realized I am better.

It happened again.
When it happened again
I realized I was not better in the least
And thought long and hard about those other years
And I redded but I was reborn tempered and determined.

What then I ponder will I make of this divide:
Choose distant glorious light
Or a darkness that does not want me
And let futility envelop this forsaken being
And live forcefully ignorant of a truth that is.
