“Cosmic Heroism”

I have always thought

endurance

a strong word.

It seems sonorous,

ringing through the ages,

resonating with experience

and giving unsuspected

strength

to the otherwise pathetic,

fear-filled and trembling

human creature cowering

before creation’s majesty.

 

Endurance:

the hope for possibility

and the recognition that

even possibility is not

positive or negative.

It just is, like justice,

and cannot be

controlled

or called upon.

Where to find our

uniquely human solution?

Faith!

 

A giving of the self

to the beyond,

whatever name you

randomly assign it.

And then there’s love

and sex and surfing,

but you know all that

and more already.

Even a rage against

the dying light

is simply a

prayer to endure.
