We as people get so easily caught up with endings. We look willingly to the future either merrily or in contempt in order to predict what will be the end. We do it in relationships, our careers, hobbies. When bad things come to an end  it’s hard to move on, but the glimmer of hope is what drives man’s spirit. When good things come to an end, it’s even harder to move on. This is because hope has been diminished. Endings are often sought as negatives. They invoke negative feelings and are thus viewed cynically.  We dabble so much with endings either past or present, we simply forget how to live in the now.

Endings are perfectly okay and necessary in this universe. Nothing is set in stone. The ending of something does not have to mean the absence of all. What is the end of a relationship is not the end of the world. It is not the upheaval of your life. It is the end of an era. A moment suspended in time by its lush awe and beauty. An era, and a moment, are the same. So it is required of us, in order to live easier lives, to live in these moments, and learn to let those moments pass.

Life is so easy to get caught up in. we become so engulfed in prolonged eras to the point that we don't see them anymore. The moment, in its prolonged existence simply becomes what we recognize as our lives. And when it gets ripped away…? All hell breaks loose. This is because we feel we’ve lost control of our lives, like every piece is slipping away without us realizing that it was never our lives to begin with. We can simply be an observer of the events that move and occur around us. Our personal perceptions and emotions towards these things have none, if little lasting effect on the outside world. So why fret? We should simply observe, from an outside perspective, the content, and value of our lives. That, in the end, brings peace.

Because when we remove ourselves from the equation, we reach an equilibrium with the universe. The perception of self within that world skewers and distorts what we miss and take for granted.
Remarks by me

I'm crawling on the edge of this chasm
Right along the brink of abyss
Spiraling down a void
Even light cant escape

Who Am I?

Pain turns to resentment when it comes to affection

Optimists are doomed to the fate of cynics

When you're walking down the road again
its cold and you're in your head
and you wonder where are your friends
cause all you know is sad

You look in your eyes and see reflections of your soul
Devils 'guised and angels peeking out the corners of a smile

Blue burns hottest
The colors of despair

So you stay up nights and get lost in the lights
while you wonder what life really means

Do you even realize when you cant see?
The emotions trick our mentality
And blindness is still blindness when your blind to reality

I must've picked them up one day
Insipid in their grandeur ways
And I looked through shaded lenses that washed the colors away.

So I lit a flame
and sparked a wick
to the ticky time bomb
of my final judgement

And there I sat
facing the facts
of who I've become
and where I'm at

Now, Embers crawl before flames dance
Just as madness is an avalanche

Becoming closer with the phone in my hand
All the platforms of make-believe lands
wearing my heart on my face
More disheveled everyday

What more to say than we're moving in place

either that or back

The circles we're caught in are the purest of black
Weaving voids where lights are trapped
And there's nothing left but grey

all I need

Is someone to take the lenses away.

I spend too many nights thinking
Wondering, writing, dreaming
Of someone who doesn't even think of me
