So turn towards the sun

20160818_163505.jpgThe most profound revelation
is something you feared all along:
that any promise of connection
is at best only temporarily real;
that no-one genuinely cares;
that it matters not what becomes of you;
that you are alone in your head and
it is unimportant that you will die;
that only your immediate descendents
– if you have them –
will miss you when you are gone;
that you are nothing but a momentary assemblage of atoms,
no different from any given leaf
on any given tree
in a forest that is headed towards
a final, irreversible
fall.
