We can travel the world to find some peace
or meditate to escape life’s indignities.
We can surrender to religious dogma
and believe that we have found the answer.
However, everything is relative.
We are enveloped in a hollow sky.
Our search for truth unmasks the void
and its uncertain quantum probabilities.
We are mere cosmic energy
arranged in electromagnetic waves
– captured and bound by gravity –
and destined for dystrophy and demise.
Contentment is not part of our condition.
We are abandoned in a maze of yearning.
