Existential Polonius (a poem)

You can't have life without its rough edges
You cannot have love without pain
Nothing is ever black and white
Good and evil are the same

Running from death
Won't take you to life
Because you have to be damned
Before you can be saved

To feel
Or not to feel
To take life as it is
Or not to take it at all

For out of nothing we were created
And to nothing we shall all return

Each of us is but one drop of water
In the river of time
And the only thing you can do
Is try to be a good person
And realize
There's no payback
