Perhaps it’s not easy to be happy,
to be always against the grain towards a lower potential,
having expended some of that fortune
and arrived at the current state,
experienced unprecedented energizers
that finally ran out of inequality.
Perhaps that’s why everyday
you read about pain, misery, misgivings, and
other undesired side-effects of an endorphin rush:
the fatigue and the doped state of indifference.
Perhaps that’s why we rant
about what we could be,
what we should have been,
and how we are not.
But even if we do not know
how it is that we can be glad,
at least we know what it means to be sad, mad and trashed,
what it takes to be ruined.
Perhaps that, then, in itself,
transforms us into an electron
one that moves against the current of despondency
one that carried excessive negativity
and is finally relieved by positivity
—the unbreakable law of nature.
