That's About It

Stop talking to yourself, silly man.
You won't do this, and you won't do that.
You won't even listen to yourself
Commanding, "stop talking to yourself."

God knows no one else is listening,
Even if it seems no one else knows
God isn't listening much either.
It's not about audience or self.

It's not about genius or madness
Or deity. It's not about fate,
Choice, good behavior, enlightenment,
Mercy, salvation. It's about it.

And you're not it. You're not even you.
You're a pause at the intersection
Of revelation and confusion,
And your decisions decide nothing

About anything. You might as well
Try to quit trying and be open
To the adventure of helplessness.
And stop taking orders from your poems!
