Accepting Defeat

Updated: Sep 25, 2021

We spend the majority of our existence trying to conquer life.

Avoiding the reality that death beckons.

Denying its place as that single unescapable truth.

We continue to pretend that we are somehow immortal,

Until one day -

We realise that we're not.

There is a great humility in death,

And it's only your pride that convinces that you're bigger than it.

Deluding you into recreating the universe in your own image.

Making you believe that the very nature of things doesn’t apply to you,
