sorry; fuck, and please prove me wrong

everything is going to be okay
that is the one lie I always chose to believe
even though
even now
I try
from time to time
but things just are
that is the truth
and the only thing you can ever really change
is your perspective
that is why
we are all alone
in the end
and the selfish people always get to lead the way
blind, dumb, deaf and dead
and please prove me wrong
prove me wrong

Death and other pastimes

deep as death
I’ve always slept
without a dream
or so it’ve seemed
kind of ironic
given that I’ve always been a dreamer
for a long time seeming like the only one
til johnny told me otherwise
in the voice of my mother
from before I was born
though I’ll always feel the part
on my walk
through the pine riddled
blueberry fields forever
where appropriated rune stones whisper
in the voices of the always silent
about present pasts
that never was
and always will be.

Pledge of Reason

by cwviderkull

I hereby Pledge

that I will always remain open
to the possibility
that everything I believe and hold to be true
might be wrong;

that I will always oblige myself
to continuously and relentlessly
justify logically
to myself

that if I ever feel afraid
to engage openly and honestly
in a debate or conversation
for fear of having my convictions shaken
I shall uncompromisingly read this
as a sign
that my convictions are probably wrong;

and Concede

that if I ever express
a sentiment that boils down to
‘nothing you say could ever change my mind’
I shall from that point forward
be regarded as a fanatic
and not be taken seriously.

If you read that you are now my witness of having taken the pledge and if you agree with me that these are valuable positions to stand by in the world today please feel…
