The Choice & The Duty



We compete to create
in order to determine
what will be remembered,
artifacts ceded to transition,
inadequate supplications
controlled through the constraints
we choose and the duty to remember
loss and what happens when
you're trying to figure out
what's happening.
Many confuse busy for happy.
I don't dream of stopping,
I don't dream of ending,
my dreams neither stop nor end.
