waxin philosophical

waxing philosophical...

why should you
always
believe that you
must drink...
the milk of human
kindness.
(without tasting
humanity's tears?)

both occur,
and both are
relevant.

if we laughed when
sad
and cried when happy...

would we be
Fortunate,

or Foolish?

The self is such
a sad uncertain thing
when lost in the
translation of it's
being!

perhaps ill weep
for you.

when you stop
laughing at the
horror of it all

and your face
becomes a broken
wishing stone.

everyone knows
the "truth" right?

(but its theirs
ALone.)
