"Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity." -Ecclesiastes 1:2
There is nothing permanent about the human existence. Everything comes to an end and somehow it never ends this vicious cycle. One thing leads to another and you come full circle. Are we fooling ourselves? The individual is so small, so insignificant. Everything one can ever do dissolves into nothingness. We earn and consume just so we can earn and consume.
Definitions. There are too many of those. Aren't they only human constructs? I am tired of definitions. I want to do away with them, but at the same time I'm equally a component of definitions. I make them and I become a victim of them. So does everyone else. This only makes me wander if we are delusional and, again, if we are only fooling ourselves.
I don't know about you but I know that I am totally messed up inside. There are too many conflicts, too many contradictions within me. I say I believe in something but I live like I don't. I say I desire something but I am not able to give everything I can to make my desire a reality. It is no longer important enough. I become afraid, I am risk-averse so I play it safe. Play it mediocre, play it complacent. I just don't have it in me. I am shallow and myopic, I might not look so. I give in too easily to distractions, they lure me away. I am loyal to none but I am a slave. I am caught within the confines of the narrow human mind.
