The Function of Life

We are irremediably alone! Despite
The palace of Illusions we have built,
Made of desires, relationships, beliefs,
In truth, we are alone facing the Unknown.

The function of life is to destroy this
Overpowering Dreamland! To tear it apart,
To crush it so that - at last! - we can behold
The astonishing beauty that shines behind it.

And when we have been stripped of all
The make-belief, of all our dreams, desires
And expectations - then whatever remains,
Is that which ever was - is! - and ever shall be!
