Why do we pursue happiness when itโ€™s only ephemeral? Abiding to unrelenting woe to attain brief junctures of contentment is mundane and nowhere near rational
IDS Mar 2020
Trust, is it all that is needed?
To others I was lost or far away,
While really I was focused
Focused on a quest to comprehend this journey

Oh this journey
This bittersweet adventure
As beautiful as a violinโ€™s chord
But as sharp as a double edged sword

Confident I entered the boat
Riding down this endless river of diverging scenery
Constantly trying to find explanation
Never capturing a clear picture

Always changing direction
Melodic waves endlessly heaving
A sleepless dog never finding position
Interweaving boundaries of peace and havoc

How long would it last?
Confusion was all that reigned
Infinite conjectures of a pleading mind
Is this a movie void of a cast?

Persisting through this river
Though the scenery now mundane
Only one thought has remained
Why dont you jump?

Could it be fear?
What if taking the leap was all it took?
All needed to decipher this puzzle
Why sail with no destination?

It truly would be too easy
Risking it all without a bust
Either acid or water
Love, one simply cannot trust

I like killing myself
escaping meals
framing insomnia
whereas itโ€™s me who detests sleep
in my dreams
I grasp a glimpse of bliss
fantasizing what I canโ€™t have
confined in a theoretical domain

I like the susceptibility of
being shredded by
other people's opinions
requesting for sincerity
even when I know
it's not what I want to hear

Why

You are subconsciously afraid of the change that will come from going from reaching out for what you genuinely want. You relate freedom to happiness, which is something good. It doesnโ€™t matter whether the change will be good or bad, your ego is afraid to change.

Why

Your ego likes the status quo. Right now youโ€™re alive and well and your ego wants to keep it that way. I believe evolution has given us an โ€œegoโ€ precisely for that reason, self preservation. It had a quite logical purpose back when humans were hunters and stuff. They had to be afraid of everything that was foreign in order to stay alive. Not anymore.

โ€œI do not feel superior because I'm vegan. The truth is I am vegan because I do not feel superior to others.โ€
โ€”Michele McCowan.

Itโ€™s more accurately a principle that we shouldnโ€™t subject anyone to our wants and/or needs.

The bottom line isnโ€™t whether we believe ourselves to be better people. The question is not what we are, but what we think, and what we do as a result of what we think. The issue is about ideas and behaviors, not people.

Those of us who reject cannibalism do not think we are "better" than cannibals, do we? We only believe that there are ways of acting that are better than others according to ethics.

I enjoy finding well-structured and coherent worldviews and ideas that collapse my prejudices, ideas, and my vision of the world; itโ€™s uncomfortable at first but the catharsis achieved by being able to synthesize opposing ideas and find common ground where to build new ideas itโ€™s one of the greatest mental pleasures I have felt.

Itโ€™s like feeling that after endless hours of trying to mix water and oil, the solution finally becomes crystalline and gleaming in veracity; to immerse myself in it and then go out to see reality with new eyes.

The main cognitive bias of all people is to discard information that contradicts their prejudices, ideologies, and conceptions of reality because of the cognitive discomfort this new information enables.

We take scientific objectivity as a base, and we accept the linguistic subjectivity and its intrinsic intuitive value; it is actually much easier to achieve a rational consensus in decision making.

Thatโ€™s why we must be very vigilant and look out for rigid ideologies that donโ€™t accept an intellectual confrontation, since they donโ€™t have the capacity to adapt to a reality like ours thatโ€™s in a constant state of transformation.

A response is what he needed
To rest serenely
Strong-minded as if
He called her constantly,
Texted ceaselessly
Formulated a poem
To portray what he discerned
Desiring to identify her
"Tell me your name so I can
thank you how you deserve."

Her sight wandered all over her dorm
Was she really thinking of
Unveiling her storm?

Her lips arched straight-up
"There's nothing to lose"
Is what she naively thought

Her name now appearing on screen
Along with her heart, mind and peace
She knew it was the end
To a never being fairy dream

"A friend would of been great back then"
Who said there's nothing
We can do nowadays
Now her secret is out
Million questions pending

He knows her name now
The shield is now below her vow
He seemed thrilled at first
He's no longer captivated
He didn't like what it displayed

"Thank you for the poem"
That's all he said

No more texts were sent
He used to reply without saying mer
Now he's no longer immediate

Nodding he lowered his sight
Deciding not to move forward
But to leave all this situation burried
Along with her light

He ached to find someone who cared
She was available at all hours of the day
What made him so blind
What prevented him to realize
She was someone to confide

She didn't shed a single tear
She knew there were risks
Not a propitious ending
But at least she now knows
He wasn't worth it

Outlasting her thoughts
She pursued a goodbye
Their houses not being faraway
She requested a meeting to amalgamate

Unbiased to encounter his neighbor
He elected to party out
She waited for him all night
Counted every single star
Drank her pain aside
Until her stinging expired

She can now move on
She is now determined
She now knows affection isn't eternal
Closing her eyes she guaranteed
Never letting her feelings
Slip off her finger tips
She's not allowing anybody into
Her now **coldhearted spirit
Any kind of feedback is welcome. Thank you.
