from “Delusional Illusions”

“How cute and ignorant that the endless quotations say, “you never know what’s waiting around the corner” or “the best is yet to come.” I don’t think the purpose of such quotations is to encourage amusement, but I find myself laughing hysterically. How enlightening and simultaneously depressing to know exactly what lingers around the corner and to understand our flawed perception of hope is merely an illusion designed to mask the darkness of reality. Pessimist?—nah, no labels please. While they continue to kneel and imagine all the good things are coming, I continue to watch the sky dangle perilously close to the ground. I’m almost certain the sky will fall and crush the earth below. In a twisted turn of false hope and optimism, perhaps that does mean something good awaits . . . just around the bend.”
