Two paths diverged in the woods.
The right choice would have been to choose the path less followed.
But now we can't see any paths.
The trees have been removed
A great expanse lies before us.
Now, people climb over each other's shoulders
Trying to reach the sun.
They think that is the only option
To keep climbing.
Even those who do reach the sun
burn up,
disappear.

I, though,
will jump
Into the water
Fade away.
Just as the good Lord did to the people before the flood.
We messed up again.
I think another flood is called for.

The author's comments:

It's hard to choose your life these days. You need money to survive, a job to get money, an education to get a job. And then, we throw it all away once we reach the grave.
