Hedonistic Idiocy

Updated on October 24, 2010

Lets be honest

you and I

looking up in the blue 

wondering if t'were empty space

death dooming the human race

nothing to point at 

in the end

but moss on ground

a stone box to live in

where life is end itself to us

then who cares what we do

why limit us?

Why write laws if death is all

a shoot out with the cops

ends pain if too much trouble we make

why bother with order at all

hippies can say what they like

but few are happier still

for those weird roads they haunted

we expect are bodies to function in due course 

each cell with purpose

each molecule with cause

What if each of these took their paths strange

did as they pleased 

instead of maintaining our vain,

foolish ways that help none but us?

Life without God feels ok 

it would seem, if we see only 

what we want to see.

If man really wants to die

forgoing how or why

they have the right

to question at all

let them jump or bleed

let them do the droll

boring, imaginationless things

to oust them from existence

Then let the rest

who want peace and purpose

observe life and existence

in perfect balance

see the cosmos as it turns

see our inner self that yerns

know the questions that have shape and form

see life with its endless patterns

see intelligence in all.

Then you and I can admit

that nothing comes from nothing

thats it

then God most be 

order too

he or she expects something from you

wants you to grow

develop and see

something in yourself

that reflects their nature

then cling to our ways, means

of being more then we are

purifying our inner selves

filling us with life, light

embracing Joy.

      lol I don't want anyone to die that way but I do feel a certain amount of satisfaction in taking hedonism or humanist dogma to its logical end and then daring them to take the final step if they dare. I personally think that none but the more cankered souls actually believe that malarkey. They just use it to quiet their conscience.

      I love how you say to let them jump or bleed.

      you are right, why the laws. Freedom is as freedom does, to live and let live. I agree, if one wants to die why not!

      Great hub. voted up and some! :D hugs :D
