The Cynic’s Chasm

Nighttime brings on feelings of emptiness.
As the moon rises, the renegade reprises
The weight of the woes he knows as

Some ask for salvation.
Others are tasked with rehabilitation;
Taking cues from men they never knew
And books filled up with false truth.

To each their own,
But Nietzsche speaks to me
Through his cynicism
And poems.

We cower to the weight of our sins,
Complacent to how things have always been.
In our darkest hour, we’re just angel dust in a vacuum,
Wrapped in a chasm that is unfathomable.

Daylight ensues, bringing on feelings of yearning.
As the sun rises, the student reprises
His quest for knowledge
And learning.

It sheds light on the feat of fulfillment,
E’er within our reach to lament.

To each their own,
But Nietzsche speaks to me
Through his cynicism
And the words he wrote.


About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
