Resisting the Juggernaut


The juggernaut of the inevitable,
Pushing, crushing, steamrolling;
The inexorable flow of nature’s will,
Overpowering; brooking no dissent,

Puny humans trying to resist, persevere,
Trying to comprehend, trying to alter the course,
Trying, trying, trying forever;
And inevitably ending either crushed or hypnotized.

Born into this theatre of mayhem,
How long can I stay untouched, unscathed…?
My certainties slowly melting away,
The farce of everything hits me in the face…

Yet persist doggedly I will,
To chart my own course to the shore;
However absurd, however meaningless,
I need to get to the true ‘meaning of it all’.
