Your life is your life
don't let it be clubbed into dank
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but it beats the darkness.
be on the watch
the gods will offer you chances.
know them, take them.
you can't beat death but
you can beat death
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is you life.
know it while you have
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight

They offer us insight into other times and places, and through their intimacy, they make other worlds real. They show us that other worlds are possible.

And that feeling might be transient but I think it's what we live for
