all you can hope for

allYouCanHopeFor_001.jpg

You can’t cheat death,
But that doesn’t mean
death can’t cheat you.

No matter what you do,
What details you alter,
What sacrifices you make,

You will always end up there.

Pain is what unites us,
Suffering is our burden.

There’s nothing you can do to change it.

You must accept the inevitable,
accept your fate

For in the end,
All you can hope for;

Is a simple tranquility,
A peaceful bliss.
An end to the strife.

Just like,
a sweet shot of whisky
At the end of a shit-smeared life.
