On the Edge

Have you ever stood on the edge? Really on the edge? One small movement and you’ll have gone to the abyss. The edge being so narrow, and you’re surrounded by the abyss. You could look at the abyss, but you’d lose your balance. Fall. Would falling be so bad? Would it be over in a second or would it be an eternity, or both? I should just fall. Let go, live in the moment, and fall. Fall. Would it all end, or would this just be a new beginning? Fall. All roads lead to Rome, the abyss. It all ends here. Fall. Why stand, take control, fall. Dive in, it looks so comforting. Coddle yourself in the darkness. Be safe, be comforted, fall. Come and dive in. It’ll be alright.

Fall.

The Knock

“Allow me one moment.”

It’s my doorstep, why should I? You’ve already imposed yourself on me. Brought yourself to my sanctum and now you feel entitled enough to take up more of my time. If I’d wanted to talk to you, needed your services I would have contacted you. Why did you feel you could walk up my path, knock on my door, and try and impose your will on me? What makes you better than all the people who walk up and down my street and never feel the urge to come to my door? What gave you the right to disturb my day, to knock me out of my stride, to stop me from enjoying my own simple pleasures? Why did you feel it would be okay to come and disturb me? Why are you so entitled?

“Sure,” I replied.

The World

We’re lost in a sea of fiction. We believe in imaginary money but ignore real climate change. We believe the lies of politicians but ignore the truth told by scientists. We believe the racists on social media but ignore the people calling them out. We believe comfortable thoughts while ignoring the world burning.

The world is ending.

There will be no more GDP.

But we still do not act, in case of an economic slowdown.

We are all doomed to die because of imaginary money and wealth.

Supposedly we think we are clever.
