Crouched in a distant corner of this world
Where the dim remnants of a setting sun
Offer up the day’s sacred finality…

An era has fallen…

The uncirculated mind
Is poised
In the looming shadow of this
Information Age

Remembering the days when men were wild things

Free will unleashed
As God intended

When intuition drew morality’s bounds
A lingering conscience
Rather than

Mass-produced morals

When the will was less malleable
And one’s own decisions were truly made
By oneself…

Remembering the days when life was lived
And lived hard
And freedom was held higher than comfort

With lives which were not dished out as
Standardized three-course meals:
Dying for the Great Machine…

We have become the afterbirth of a new era
A great collective placental lining
Which it devours in its infancy

The New Dark Ages are here
Guised as a light omnipotent

A brilliant light to blind us all…

But we are human beings
And there is more to us than we know…

"sacred finality"
there is a sad truth in this... but hope too...

because the memory of when freedom mattered more than comfort is carried deep within all of us, because there is more to humans than being human, because we all contain an essence that is both sacred and eternal...

thank you for the impassioned metaphysics of this.
