Ode to Honesty

In life we are taught to live
without the greatest inspiration
that could teach us how to truly exist
So it's no wonder we are born to die

Factions are created just to welcome
the end of the world even if it never comes
But then, before you judge me
isn't that what religion prepares us for?

I hope I die before I realize
how futile life has become

Doomsday, Armageddon, End of Days
if this is the culmination of everything
Then why foster relationships
if they are going to end?

Civilization has just been one huge joke
at the expense at those living within it
Though we will die with no legacy
who can remember those who really matter?

I hope I die before I realize
how futile life has become

As one in six billion with no meaning
Does anything I achieve really mean anything?
Hell please sweep the earth away
I don't want to live in this world anymore

The End
