The Greatest Rule About Vision

Aug 19th, 2010

Is that at first in life

The world is the universe

And the function you see

Goes to infinity.

Youth finds solace in the endless

Future before them.

But the more you see

And the more you learn,

The more you find truth

Is precisely measured.

Not going much farther,

Given its extent,

The world becomes smaller

Leaving only lament.

As we watch the ground

Bellow our feet

Exponentially shrink

We make ourselves the universe

And wouldn't you think

We become thinner and perverse,

Black holes to all with gravity

Expanding on self-depravity

To a minuscule sink.

Age finds solace in its begotten,

False hope that an impossibility,

A law of existence,

Might be bent or broken

To allow passage for the chosen

To the fable of a baby's first view,

And a rearing's first promise,

The greatest lie of life:

You can do whatever you want to do.

To accept this as false,

And in your game lose,

Would be to stave depression

From great expectation

Of what society holds true,

Born from excess

And many a broken dream

From a generation's broken world

And booming economy.
