Revelation 3



It's not going to end well.
However it started,
however well or badly it's going now,
or will later, or later still,
it isn't going to end well.
Everything you build will fall.
Everything you make will break.
Nothing you get will you keep.
People will do the wrong thing.
You will do the wrong thing.
Everyone you know will die.
You will forget almost everything.
On your last day
you will still be discovering
new ways to suffer
and revisiting old ones.
You will die too soon
or outlive those you love.
It will not end well.

But it hasn't ended yet.
