The Year of Real


for Kris

During this New Year, we will still be

governed by the soulless


flow of cash.  It’s the year where making

a killing translates solely to murder.  We


fill ourselves up with necessary

delusions blinding ourselves


to the shackles we all bear.  You can never be


in power when you are in debt

to an idea of worth that is worthlessly ascribed


by some ideology you never bothered

to learn.  This is the year when we begin


to realize free-will does not

include the pursuit of money.  It never can


be the Creator of happiness.  Rationality belongs to

the cool observer, but the will of man cannot be


to follow not reason but naïve faith

which requires not reality but illusion.
