This is not just a form of payback. Your words are shared by my inside desire for understanding emptiness and a certian kind of misunderstood station of lonliness. I often see things in their rawest form. Just as the Lord intended our time here too be. Confusion and turmoil seem to reign supreme within the actions of man. I too lye in wait for a day that gives promise and peace to an otherwise existence of survival of the fittest. So many are led by vanity and don't have confidence in feeling. It reminds me of a baby that is infactuated with bright colors. That is where the turmoil is derived from; man's need for status and power. The pit fall is the refusal to learn from historical blunders. Why can't people realize that time is running out from the day they are born. The gift of life comes with a test. The test being how we choose our path, and how we can stand firm regarding our choices made.
A very simple philosophy to live by is, "Don't take life so seriously. You will never get out of it alive!"
