Mortality

To boldly go

Struggling to peer through

my own glass ceiling

Caught in the constant

Search for a meaning

Perception of all

Things that are flowing

Condensing on this

Moment of knowing

Life is a struggle

The more we exist

Accord is the puzzle

That always persists

Struggling to peer through

my own glass ceiling

Searching for something

That feels like a feeling

Trading places with bliss

I'll make do with this

Trading places with bliss

Living's a risk

The positive side of our foolish minds

believes our struggles will happiness find,

but the truth is a little darker than this -

for living converts our bliss into risk.

Happiness decays from birth's first spark, to

power our journey back into the dark.
