Life Is a Labyrinth, Not a Maze

Past, present, and future are illusions.
Time is not. Change is not. There's only change.

That's the great mercy, the only mercy,
The one true, necessary covenant,

The ever-rolling stream, This Too Shall Pass,
The singular consequence that forgives

Every foolish decision. There are none.
We are not lost, looking for a way out.

The way out is the inevitable,
And we cannot even decide to stop.

If we could stop, we could make a mistake,
We could perhaps get ourselves stuck for good.

But we can't, and as we can't, as we can
Only change and disappear, we are free.
