Nothing can be believed
Nothing can be trusted
Nothing can deny death.

All glory amounts to
Nothing
All pride leads to
Nothing
All love ends in
Nothing
Why do we cling to the things that deny us
Why do we seek the things that will destroy us
Why do we long for that which will betray us,

All revenge amounts to
Nothing
All pain leads to
Nothing
All life ends in
Nothing
Why do we cling to these things that bring us pain
Why do we seek these things that cannot last
Why do we long for that which will betray us,

Glory and revenge
Amounts to death
Pride and pain
Leads to death
Love and life
Ends in death
Why do we cling to it
Why do we seek it
Why do we long for it,

Because it is inexorable
It is inescapably,
Intolerably,
Inadvertently,
Subconsciously,
Undeniably,
Absolute.
Absolution we can believe
Absolution we can trust
Absolution, alone, denies death.
