We the undying
We the undying ...who live not, bow before thee of serene countenance in sublime indifference, rejecting these as the seven supreme lies by which men live: 1. that we are above all, individual and separate from thee 2. that our existence requires hope, meaning and purpose 3. that we are endowed with free will by our creator, as a requisite for the fulfillment of our potential 4. that we are bound by love 5. that all men are created equal 6. that all men must die 7. that in our hearts thou art sacred May our lives remain forever hopeless and free of illusion [31 V 2015]
