shackled by shadows

we search this world for meaning
terrified of the void
but there is a black hole
inside each of us
it spins invitingly
and draws us into
our own destruction

the one who seeks liberation
gives himself willingly 
to this spinning void
and in his death
he is resurrected into freedom

but the one who resists
the one who fights
for his survival 
is forever haunted by it
and will spend his life
shackled by shadows

to defeat death
you must die before you die
