A great man like him, with all his brawn and vigor, reduced from a hundred pound lifter to a foot digger in a moment. A man so strong, nothing outside could get in. Just as nothing inside can get out. If...

unanswerable questions

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Can death be sure,
without existence? 
Or is existence only sure,
with death? 

And,
if death rules,
why do we live? 

What makes us satisfied? 
How do we establish values? 
The more of acquired,
or felt? 

So,
then,

What runs the world? 
The driving force of reason,
of greater and lesser,
or compulsive desire?

greed

PROMPT: The Unseen

I don't crave a thing.
What is nothing
can't want.

But to be something
I can want. 
And when it is more,
greater,
everything,
of something,
all that is there
is want.

survival

PROMPT: Tagline Art

We eat when hungry. Sleep when tired. It's instinct - more, that we humans fulfill our desires. Survival of the fittest, natural selection, evolution - truths established to justify death. Murder? No, because they're strong, and us stronger. It's the circle of life, which all creatures are trapped in. Except humans. We have choice, conscience, wisdom. An exception to nature, we can act outside of it. Yet still, we apply the truths of nature so we can prioritize greed over...
