i don’t even care how long that post is because it deserves to be read by just about everyone. sorry not sorry.
Define the art of leaving things undefined.
What is absurdity? Well, it has no time or place. No feel nor sound. It’s that beautiful two dimension that’s all around you, yet you never seem to notice.
Absurdity is a goodbye left unspoken, a hopeful hello. Absurdity is love said in passings.
It has no origin, no place of creation. It’s found in the wasted tears of a privileged innocence. It’s in the voice of a melodic liar.
Absurdity fills all your voids; it consumes you. You can turn to the left or even the right and find it.
Absurdity is the last breath of a dying child; the contradicting tactics of a teacher.
Absurdity is in accepting fate as a predetermined chance.
There’s no definition, no way to prove the world of its abundance.
Absurdity is in these words trying to explain something so evident.
Absurdity is in burying a child, withholding a smile, or even trying to predict the inevitable.
We create absurdity in trying to time the timeless, explain the wondrous, label the new, and discover the unreachable.
Absurdity is trying to obtain perfection.
Absurdity is blaming society though together, we are society.
It’s holding our tongues, in harboring love, in sharing hate.
Absurdity is accepting.
It’s the act of rewriting and rephrasing instead of being blunt.
Absurdity is Augustus Waters’ death.
There’s absurdity in assumption, in judgement and even in truth.
Absurdity is in the close minded.
Absurdity is in mourning the child who kills themselves, yet rejecting the child who tries.
It’s losing a moment.
There’s absurdity in unconditional love, for which there should always be conditions.
Absurdity is in all the breaths you take and all the hands you shake.
Life is absurd at times.
So maybe that’s the meaning of life: realizing that you can’t put a definition on it.
You can’t define life or love or give them a worded meaning.
Because words can only try to explain a thought so abstract.
Mankind is inevitably absurd.
Maybe you believe that or maybe my words are too controversial for you.
But the best I can do at defining life is defining the moments that create it and that’s what I’ve done, and that’s all I can do.
Do not limit yourself trying too define a beautiful surprise.
Let life define itself.
