there is always a yin and a yang
light and darkness
cost and benefit
in this human existence
these are the rules you must abide by
accept or be paralysed
this must be how artists can paint the bleak
can you even run away from the dark
when you live in it, when you contain it?
the amazing, strong, beautiful human beings
maybe they understand that making sense of what happens
is futile? overrated?
and these are the humans that undergo the most tragedy
so it’s wisdom exchanged for endured pain?
doesn’t seem like a good trade?
of course, likely not of their own choosing?
and humans today aren’t much more superior than those of the past
as long as we are mortal, civilisation’s wisdom is capped
