Once more into the rain I stared
Wondering if the heavens
Broke just like us
For immortality is cursed
With suffering endless
Making a God
Omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent
And yet unhappy.
Heaven's not the best party in town
And hell's not that bad either
The cosmic joke then remains
That dissatisfied mediocrity is the norm
For god and man
Life does not free us
And neither will death.
As Sisyphus pushes his rock up the mountain
And Atlas bears his heavenly weight
Faint smiles appear on their lips
With the knowledge that
Being damned for eternity
Is not punishment
If everyone shares the same fate.
I jump into the rain
Tired of fearing someone's tears
Tired of fearing mine
When only within tears lies the whole story
To be drowned by each other's pain
To suffer together
And maybe then understand that
An unhappy existence cannot be avoided
But a lonely one may be.
