Cycles and Endings

Cycles and Endings

The pendulum swings faster and faster now, not just every couple of years as it did at first, or every couple of seasons, or every other month or even every other day. I don’t think the phoenix is about to rise again and if it does, I doubt the outcome will be any happier.

The cycle needs to be broken, that’s all; then, even if everything isn’t all right, at least it’ll be different.

I think I’m ready to do it but that’s always the case on this side of the swing. It shouldn’t be so hard; after all, all I need to do is to do nothing.

It’s just that sometimes nothing isn’t all that easy to do.
