I am here

Perhaps Nietzsche was right:

the struggle is no use,

the struggle is vain,

insane in the cold

inevitable cosmos.

that cares not for

my pain or the

love that drives its stake

through every vein.


But still, still, still I try,

still I cry with the suffering,

and feel overwhelmed and

lost and found in this world,

and live by faith and face the

great questions that I cannot

answer except in the living, 

the living now, the living proud,

the living that says—damn the

universe for I am here!
