Understanding yourself is the most important thing that will ever be achieved in order to successfully survive reality.


Decision simple:
Die on this hill? Or, perhaps
Stop; reconsider.

So many years spent
Questioning existence, to
Reach this conclusion.

Reality, now
Finally registers: no
Turning back, assess.

Assemble your facts
Consider: how much as truth
What is imagined?

Survival matters
As brighter future beckons:
New journey begins.
