Standing Still: Poetry & Art

Absurdity - 9"x12" acrylic on canvas 

Societal Success is never fully attained;
it is allowed only in stages
and revoked in alienating waves

Yet we spin in frantic, senseless circles
chasing the tails of our own ambition
throughout our entire lives

And the Absurdity of it
is that we are encouraged to maintain
this pace of inanity for a finish line many never see

Therefore, greet this Dawn with clear eyes:
One can fully see the puppet strings 
only by Standing Still.
