drive blind

endlessly i lamented as i drove through the darkness,

not once considering that i should have removed my blinders.

calm down.

sometimes the solution might just be (literally) before your eyes.

p/s: this came about because i had a weird dream in which i was driving through a badly lit tunnel (or so i thought) when i realised i had my shades on lol.

contra mundum

doves are in yonder flight; ante bellum,
the good often die young; we keep vigil.

life can never escape death; memento mori.
even the highest peaks despair; the skies higher still.

the world is not ours to inherit; dust off our feet.
there is nothing to be mourned, fait accompli.

but even as the river flows, unstoppable,
we walk against the clock, contra mundum.

Conceived because I was fascinated by some Latin / French words.

Christians may notice some gospel-inspired lines. Hehe.

*
ante bellum = before the war
memento mori = remember everyone dies
fait accompli = what has been done cannot be changed
contra mundum = against the world
