The Test

Is this a test? It has to be. Otherwise I can't go on. What brings to me to this reality I don't remember how I could agree before, during, and after I could see I am forced to be me. Time is a dimension that we partly understand. How strange it is to go back to the places we've been To behold an altered familiar land. Irreversibly changed by man. Of what will I do now? What's the point, I've been here long and well somehow. I've "Had a good one" as they say. When someone unknown says goodbye, in a common way. What's different now compared to then, there's far less fun to be found and zero plans. I am humble and I have found humility. I do not want, I only need. Why does a human have both good and bad? I filter out most things when I am glad. I show those around me the happiness I have found. Every day is a battle, a flag taken from the mound. Outside it's too quiet, inside it's too loud. The night fights for now have gone away. There's no other point than to just go play. I choice this life with no guarantees. I honor close friends found around me. I remember those that were true, I exalt them on high as I take my view. I challenge myself to live a more full life, pushing the capacity and finding more strife. I found the best version of me, but I can do better from where I see. I hum the songs and chime the bell, what will happen now, only time will tell.
