This is the way the world ends not with a bang but a whimper- T.S Eliot


Your pulse quickens


It is the only reason you continue on


That and if you don’t you will fall to your death


You are called a daredevil, an extreme sports man


But really you do it for the rush


The rush of adrenaline


The feeling of immortality


You clime Mt. Everest without a mask


You dive Marianas Trench without air


You do whatever you can to escape the truth


If you stoped


You would be nothing


But if you don’t stop you will die


Not because you did nothing but because you did something


Something stupid or amateurish


For the rush


You lived and died for the rush
