Published 11/15/03

When the time has come
To find the answers
And nothing is left
But a puddle of mud
There is but a window of hope
Omnicient of whose blood this is exposed

Do not question these outcomes
Only accept them as is
There is not complaint
It is all as is
God has made this path
The trouble is accepting it
As God’s vision

How can a mortal ever hope to
See such grandeur and come to its terms
It is impossible
The only way we can explain it is
Pain is beauty

To win is not give in
Only you can lose
The trick is to never see loss
To be blind to its enticement
Loss is The Devil much in the way that
He tries to convince you to end
What he cannot end for you but wishes to

Everything is loss.
What is to win?
To win is to make it to the end
And stay afloat until the end is not by your own design
