If

If

A Poem by JR

If you want to know the truth there are no truths

everything is subjective

built on a shifting foundation of experience

if you want to know the self

there is no self

we are amorphous

we shift with each new moment

the moment you started this poem is dead,

it is gone,

each breath you draw is a new you

a million cells die within you

within your lungs, your heart, your brain

a millions cells are born anew

there is no original meat left on your structure

you are reborn every seven years

if you want to know sin there is no sin

nothing you can do in your span can stop your spark

if you want to know the individual

there is no such thing

we are each an aspect of each other

we all are made of the powder of heaven

that rained down when the Earth collected from dust

if you want to know darkness…

that exists

if you want to know evil you will have to know the self

if you want to know god you will have to define evil

if you want to know the end you will be disappointed

energy is its own truth

it is never created or destroyed

it is the fabric chosen to weave the universe

if you want to know time

you will learn age

you will watch the rot of years

watch as it cuts into your flesh

watch as it takes everyone you love from you

if you want to know death

he will come for you

if you don’t want to know death

he will come for you anyway

if you want to know life

you are ignoring your every day

if you want to know light

it comes every morning

it is in the song of the robin

it is in the scent of your coffee

if you want to know you are ok, you are ok

everyone is exactly like you

if you want to know everything

you already do
