balanced between futile hope
and definitive damage
how could one not go psycho
between aspiration to transcend
and the inevitability of failure
as all one is holds one back from
all one may become?
all one's intent is as nothing
all one's love and compassion
a joke to the indifferent universe
oh let all trying be rested and abandoned
let act in the instant call the shot
let imagination merge with the reality
and let the life stand as it is
