yo! so it hit me a couple of days ago that i never quite finished a series on numerics that i started a couple of months ago.
so…i dug up some seed material and put flesh to them in an attempt to complete the 10-piece series. i already did zero to three, you can check them out via these links:
next up, is “Four”.
this one is basically about our (read ‘my’) struggle with my basic impulses and the struggle to balance it against what society expects of me in terms of conduct. i hope it resonates with you. otherwise, i am either a total alien or you are living in denial…
choose your verdict honestly.
Heat…instinctive and impulsive desires
latent passion stoking fires
irrational behavior, single-mindedly brutish
basically necessary but ultimately foolish…
Primal urges, instant gratification
now is vital, later is inconceivable
forget the mind, let the body enjoy edification
the ability to be unthinking is commendable
We are strong, but our urges are stronger
that overwhelming desire to be pleasured
animalistic, carnal, thirsts lasting longer
without thought of consequence, self-pressured
Man versus Animal; decisions and choices
the daily distinction between savage and civil
standing tall on two feet in the physical
but in the mind, here we are down on all fours…
