I wonder. is it only a matter of time? or is failure a possibility?
Often I get the sense "the battle" is costantly being fought within me..on the verge of living up to all hopes or falling deep into unending despair. all I have to do is make one desicion..it would seem time is irrelevant. fate will have our answer..
of course these are all concepts of a mind, a ball of conscience thought I call me.. perceiving a indifferent world.
Yet I seem to project myself as my history..the same as the whole. the worlds history. Is the truth of the worlds religions of no consequence?
If we evolved to the state where we created the idea of god..will we not eventually create it as well? And wouldnt that have been true all along?
Failure is always a possibility. I read a story about Abraham Lincoln, who failed at something, forget what, I think it was different things, seven times before he became president of the U.S.
I am not sure what you are talking about for you, but I understand that sense of being on the precipice, or something. Do I keep going? Do I stop and do something else? Am I crazy? Am I sane? Am I perceiving my reality correctly?
And then, what does it matter if I keep going and I turn out to be wrong? Time is a human concept, I guess. So what if I don't reach the goals I set, and so what if they were unreachable in the first place. At least I tried.

does it really seem possible to fail? logically? yes. but still when I simply feel my spirit burning, as I pray for the knowledge of where to direct my strength, as feanor burned yet fingolfin fought on, I dont think so. the same as I see "I" I see the world the cells in me the people of the world
the hatred..the burning consuming of self...feeding of its own
A world that stares back in coldness yet the faith is still in me and I am human
I will try..and I will die but we will go on..and when my story is told my name will be one and we will not fail.
shortcomings are something that has to be dealt with and evry body has them, but to be a failure in my scence would to be just given up and not doing what i know is right, and thats just not feasible to me
